I informed my diary
Last night
I'm replacing you with paper
It'll keep me saner

I will imagine
As I once wished
To touch
Your skin
Like paper

Little inscriptions
on your face
I thought
I'd leave one of my own

But here you are
Replaced by paper

You are on paper
And the paper becomes you

Pulp and process
My heart into bits of mush
And pull sheets from it
And I'll write you

I have replaced you with paper
And beat my heart into it

Thin sheets of you, and you and you
In short words and long
words and ones which
don't make sense
and they're unearthly
but mine.

And you aren't.
You have been replaced by paper.
