Paper Heart

Cardstock

Glue

Strips of torn colored silk

Tiny silver beads

Feather found

On a walk

We took together

Midnight poem

From my soul

Indelibly inked

Upon the surface

The secrets

About you

I have been

Keeping

 

This is how I construct

The paper heart

I hand to you

A gift

A proxy

For the delicate

Clockwork

Inside my chest

That has

Oh so slowly

Begun to beat

In time

To yours
