Letters To Herself

Warm sage tea in hand,

Warm sage tea in hand, and fresh tears on her face,

she sits at her desk,

she sits at her desk, and writes at a steady pace.

Though her breath is shaky,

Though her breath is shaky, her pen leaves a glistening trail,

outlining each word to reveal

outlining each word to reveal the secrets she can't otherwise unveil.

With each deft loop and stroke

With each deft loop and stroke of her pen, she details her days,

recounting what made her choke

recounting what made her choke with envy and rage,

What made her heart break

What made her heart break with love and with strife,

and the memories that will never shake

and the memories that will never shake away from her life.

Time ticks by as she fills the page,

Time ticks by as she fills the page, and gradually her worries

ebb away like waves,

ebb away like waves, and it's a feeling that's treasured

though it may be brief,

though it may be brief, that she might finally find some reprise

from her grief.

As her words meet the end of the page,

As her words meet the end of the page, she takes another sip of warm sage,

feeling her hope in her core expand,

feeling her hope in her core expand, looking over the newly penned letter in hand.

She slides it into a fresh ivory envelope,

She slides it into a fresh ivory envelope, and into a drawer with a silent oath,

where among others it is sealed within,

where among others it is sealed within, with all the deliberation

of recounting a hymn,

And hopes when they are opened,

And hopes when they are opened, whenever that may be,

they'll open to a world

they'll open to a world with a bit more positivity.
