Words on a crumpled piece of paper

Never to be read again

Thrown in the garbage

To rot in a landfill.

The words

Handled with care

Nurtured, chosen thoughtfully

Now dissolve

Beside photos of the dead girl who wrote them.

Her life's work was discarded in an instant

Except some words aren't with the rest.

Her favorites

In a poem titled "I'm Sorry".
