Crumpled Words

Her tears held the page in place
A torrent of emotion obscured its face,
In words smeared and blurred
Their meaning lost.
The page was
Torn,
Mangled,
Tossed
Into the space of memory.
A mind cluttered with
Crumpled words like flies
Trapped in cobwebs,
Clinging to the corners
Of a room
Still buzzing
In the rustle of
An impatient broom
That lies in wait
To sweep the rubbish clean,
And leave no litter in between
Weathered planks in a dimpled floor.
To scour the past
Before the words strike back
Delivering a counter blow,
That stains the present
And forever
Seeps into
Tomorrow.
