Christy Bythrow

Tattered Paper

she wrote down her secrets on notebook paper

and folded them

until they would fold no more

and she put them in a box

where no one could find them

locked away

and she locked herself away too

until she met him

and she gave him the key to herself

and he read her secrets to the world

over and over

until she was tattered like the paper

with only an empty box in her arms
