Sheet of Paper

Sadness overcame me, out of the blue

I couldn’t explain why I felt this way,

though the tears rushed out of me like words

from a fountain pen,

upon the parchment,

line by line,

life by life

drying,

dying

as the well of my teardrops turned to dust

and just like that,

I was gone.
