written in ink

Write it on my arm.
In ink so I won’t forget.
Words are nothing unless they’re written.
Written in our hearts?
Souls?
Ink.

Tattoo your love into me so I know it is real.
Otherwise it is not.
Words flow like petals in the wind,
Just as hearts soar like birds taking flight.

Will they come back?
Who knows.
Will you come back?
Who knows.

Write it on me so it will be there forever.
Never erased.
Never missed.
Never forgotten.

You’ll have to come back.
