Reminders of You

I was looking through a trunk of papers.

Trying to be organized, normal.

I found 2 Christmas cards.

They both said, him.

I didn’t bother opening either.

Instead I used to corners of the envelopes and scraped out the dirt from under my fingernails.

All that dirt he put there,

Leaving me to scrape it out with my heart and soul.
