Writing Our Love Story

I start at the conclusion
And make you love me
I weave metaphors like
I weave baskets fit for a king
I inch my way backwards
into the body of our story
And I forget what it is I want to write about
Our paper is choked with eraser marks
I sharpen my pencil again and again
Until all that’s left is broken
I skip ahead to the prologue instead
But I don’t know where to begin.

You are the love letter I never sent
