In the Past

Dear diary, 

I love him

I loved him.

Crumpled pages tarnished

with tears show imperfections

in what was once faultless,

no longer 

stuck by such scribbles 

only futile memories

of a

spark that spun 

into a blaze,

where I threw the diary

watched the embers of the old us

die out        one 

by

one.
