Letter from a Stranger

Tue, 01/28/2014 - 19:49 -- Guen


Allow me to speak of the marks you have made, of this veritable letter of inner turmoil

It begins with small marks, little notes, akin to half-thoughts you have yet to verify

Passages of utmost importance circled or underlined, or perhaps a mixture of both

Stars drawn with a heavy hand to reiterate their urgency

Your inevitable decline into laziness, as your letters slow

The underlines overtaken by half-hearted scribbles, I laugh as your pencil changes

As I erase, every additional mark in this library book makes me hate you a little more.
