dear diary

scarlet poet

Dear diary,

such a simple phrase. 
so easy to spill secrets to its entirety,

although hard to say aloud. 

dear diary,

the place that knows me best. 
the place I scratch down my worry. 
it knows my heartbreaks and heartaches. 

dear diary,

I'm here again, with a new mistake. 
you hold every single memory,

but I hope no one finds you. 

dear diary,

I messed up again, but I'm sure you knew that. 
thanks for being trustworthy,

keeping all my lows in the pages. 

dear diary,

thank you for the therapy,

you in all your glory and finery,

even though your leafs run low. 

dear diary,

we've hit it for the long run,

but pencil smudges make it blurry. 
I should've used pen, but my time has come. 

it's too late.

      It does help to get things out. The release of feelings on paper. To share those feelings with others. I write of loves long past. Because I want to remember them. Because they were and alway's will be a loving memory. I liked your poem. Sad and hurtful as it may be. It shows the feelings even those are not good one. You say you make mistakes. Well we all do. But we get over them in time and try not to make them again. You have a good evening . I will read more later.
