water damaged paper

“I miss her,” he admits.
The air is chill and the snoring around him is at its roar.
He gave up covering his ears months ago.
Now, the crashing sounds around him form melodies he has grown quite fond to hear.
They keep his mind from wondering.  And he does not need worry of having his voice found.
He can admit his longings and say them out-loud – without another ear hearing their sound.
In his fingers he holds the last of her memory.
A letter.
It’s gone through the fire. (That of angry men.)
It has gone through the water. (For rain is a merciless crude.)
But still the young lad holds it – tightly – in his fingers.
The damned water damaged paper.
