Que sera, a broken song to sing

Here is me, holding on to what is a broken memory
a piece of paper i created with my imagination that has tricked me to believe the memory into something quite so vivid

tearing it further
until it is in the shape of a shard

light it up – because lights will guide you home,
but i watch the last thing i held on so tightly to
go up

in flames

savour the process, perhaps
or not: it was gone before more tears could fall
salt water on paper, as if a futile attempt to extinguish the fire

but all that is, is:
ashes in your name
