Handwritten

image

It’s harder
to write
than to key
because our handwriting
shows our pain
in the strokes.
Wavy,
inconsistent,
faltering letters
reveal our tragedy,
our heartache.
The reader feels
the tears
in each curl
and hesitation.
Hearts laid bare
in a handful of lines,
and you have this pain
in your hands.
Each time you read
my wavering lines,
you read my heart
and see my soul.

The picture is a shortened version of my poem, The Me I Turned Out to Be, that I made for my Instagram account. Check it out @loveletterstoaghost.
