Tucked in all the forgotten places
are letters as yellow as dandelions.
He said - she said - clings to stationery
with faded penmanship that was
once bold in its ink and words.
He was at war – She was alone….
Paper escaped battle zones,
but trust fought a bigger war.
Envelopes tied with red ribbon
are skeletons waiting for questions
to shake answers from their dry bones.
