Paper Death

Hands shaking, trembling
As I slice
The paper envelope open
Eyes cloud with tears
As I read the words
Why are my dreams
So easily shattered?
Breaking my heart in two
Wishing I could burn
This pager at
Fahrenheit 451
But knowing deep
Inside that it’s
Just one more thing
That I can’t do
Stomp up the stairs
A paper cut on my soul
Silence surrounds
Not even the crinkling of
My paper death
Is to be heard
Sitting motionless
Body paralyzed with
Self-inflicted disappointment
I am numb
Bleeding, stinging
The only I think I feel
Paper Death
