For the poetry to rise to the top

Her tears held the page in place
A torrent of emotion obscured its face,
In words smeared and blurred
Their meaning lost.

Torn,

Tossed
Into the space of memory.

Be careful what you wish for
For it could soon be yours
And once you have it in your hand
You may not want it anymore.
