Paper

This is the poem I'm planning to give to my boyfriend on our anniversary. I don't know if everyone does this, but we give different gifts for each year you're together. 1st year is paper, 2nd year is cotton etc all the way to diamonds and rubys.

Paper

 

I give you paper first.

It's creased with laughter and a little frayed at the edges.

An inky blot of jealousy stains one corner

our fights are a carefully mended tear. 

It's greasy with travel

and it smells like late nights, and date nights; 

and the nights spent turning a new page together.

We give paper because even though it's fragile,

like us, it can last a year.
