dear miss pen, …

columbus, ohio, usa

dear miss pen,

my confidant in passing
and thought-memorializing friend

miss pen,

you allow me to command, desire, say & ask
but one day, you’ll leave my thoughts mid task

miss pen,

you’ll take your leave, but to what end?
you’ll silence me, and the flow of words suspend

miss pen,

i’ve cradled you in my hand
my fingers’ touch –paper’s jealousy can’t stand

i’ll grieve the ink you’ve spilled for me, miss pen
i’ll cry our final strokes
and suffer your ink’s end

i promise… our scribbled love shall not erode
nor shall the affection that on my heart you wrote.
