A piece of paper
Passed from hand to hand
Inked with many colors
A piece of paper
Thrown across the room
And cherished on a wall
Doodled on with hearts
And stabbed by the point
Of a pen
A piece of paper
Torn at the edges
And crumpled in shapes
Marked with graffiti
By secret love affairs
I am
A piece of paper
