When You Write with Sharpie on Paper

You know how

When you write on paper with Sharpie

Sometimes

It bleeds through

Onto the next page?

And then

Then next page is covered in useless

Scribbles

Marks

That you can read –

Sort of –

If you look really hard

But why bother

When you can flip back

To the first page

And see everything you wrote

Crystal clear?

Sometimes I feel like that paper

With

Faint

Useless

Impressions

Scribbles

If you try hard,

You can read me

But no one ever does

– Try hard, that is

Nope.

I end up

Crumpled up

Thrown away

Or

Just ignored

You know how

When you write with Sharpie on paper

And it bleeds through

Onto the next page

Sometimes I feel like that page

Behind you

There to catch what you can’t hold onto
