Faded Purple Words

There are words I need to bury
Written on a fading purple note
Those words that scar – I love you, I miss you
X’s and O’s that oh so innocently wound my heart

Once they were light in my hands
Lifting my heart out of darkness
Their weight now beyond me
I leave them to lurk unread.
