WordPress Daily Prompt – Paper

When I get down,
And wish I could hide,
I pull out a sheet of paper
And write down,
All the things you wanted me to be
All the things I’ll never do.
All the reasons,
I could never blame you.
All the ways,
That I could never be
The person I wanted,
The life I could lead.
I crumple it and toss it,
Bruising the smooth pulp.
I light it on fire,
And watch it burn.
I take the ashes,
And bury them in the dark.


Letters from inside my head
