Unwrapped

I am the paper that wraps,
Cut, folded, held together with
Slivers,
Stretched to conceal secrets.

A one- sided decoration adorned with ribbon and glitter,
Labelled,
I am the paper torn.

Ripped.

Crushed.

Cast aside.

Rescued,
I wait.
Smoothed, I turn the tawdry, the useless, the silly and the desired
Into promises.
