We wrote plentiful love letters,
With such conviction, and memories.
Our words were rich, worth more to me
Than any vault, or thriving treasuries.
There was no mention of the cost,
With the increase in paper prices.
It’s possible that we, alone,
Caused the drastic rises.
In response to the sixth “line that strikes you” prompt from NaPoWriMo.net
My inspiration came from the line: “The Rise in Price of Paper Was Accounted For” from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.
