the ink on my paper

the ink on my paper
has turned on me

every word I put down
turns into an image of you

happy and laughing
throwing bread to the
seagulls

excited and terrified
riding the coaster
for the first time

the ink on my paper
turns every tragedy
I write about us into

songs of love and hope

infinite dreams about
our future

intimate words under
a blanket

bringing her into the
world

the ink on my paper
is all I do anymore

to bring you back from
the other side

so I can see your smile
as your eyes gaze off
into the distance

to show her who her
mommy was
