leather-bound and torn,
with the dates already bleared
the edges feel so worn,
and the handwriting is smeared
ink and tears begin to mix
intertwined with all these bits,
these pieces of my shattered heart
fall gently from the void that’s left
and every blear and smear,
it’s all becoming clear
i start to really see
as my words, somewhat eternal,
bleed upon the journal
that you once gave to me.
