Throwback Friday: Tattered Heart-Christine/Brave and Reckless

i am a faded
tattered
valentine
pinned to
a dusty bulletin board
a thumbtack
piercing my paper heart
partially obscured by photographs
of smiling new faces
perky motivational sayings
only bits and pieces of me
still visible in the montage
the sentiments I carried
that you once treasured
enough to put me here
with loving hands
in a place of honor
now forgotten
why do you leave me here
hanging alone?
