In the attic I found some broken hearts

In the attic I found some broken hearts
Climbing the ladder this discovery was not my aim
Searching for something far more mundane
A box overflowing with love letters I came upon
Binder paper, legal pads, and stained pages written on
Spilled out onto the pink insulation in the attic
Words... Frantic, gentle, longing, anxious, poetic
Scribbled, typed, emailed, handwritten on stationary
I was astonished to find so many
Secret wishes, silent dreams, distant hopes, hidden treasures
From various authors over countless years
Reminded me that I, too, have broken hearts
