Getting warm

I remember
all the warmth
I siphoned
from your words
from the passion,
and the promises
of yours,
maybe I believed or maybe
I pretended that
your writing wasn’t lies,
but still, I may be warm
from letter-lies
while turning paper
into ash.

  1. “letter-lies” is a perfect name for them. written talk is so danged cheap. I like how you shifted the warmth, yet it still feels like cold comfort.
