Strong piece

Letters Barely Sent

i.
Open my heart
as if it was wrapped
in deteriorated receipts
and strands of raven hair.

Regret left behind
papercuts
and soy-based ink.

ii.
Something exhales
flower-printed stanzas
of budding young love;
entwined ivy fingers
and elephant heartbeats.

iii.
Tuck towers
behind a shadow
of doubt and watch
as something desolate
shivers.

Life spills out
from beneath the snow,
but we are deaf.

iv.
Abandon me
before you fall asleep.

Perhaps starlight
will ignite the chill
of catastrophe
before we fade to red.
