A Poem by LouBelle

I keep your sheets close to me.
Before bed I read them
with a heavy head
and weep
Tears navigate the curves of my cheeks
salty kisses linger around my chin
until
quick
don't wet the ink!
I wonder which words might have been meant for me,
inspired by me.
Did you know I'd read them one day?
Half way through,
turning the air-tight pages at the back
yet to be disturbed in the nine years they've been waiting for me.
There you are
released from the depths of your memories
and awakening mine
your voice echoes through the pages
your smell lit like a match.
I have to put it out.
Close the book.
I can't yet look.
How did you stay in there for all this time?
Perhaps just a peek
once in a while.

Those words, that book, the poems found after the other passes, or just leaves leaving behind the pages.
Was it love for the speaker, was it love for another?
Maybe never knowing for sure is the best course...then the speaker can always imagine those words were meant for .....?
