One Year Ago Today: Paper Heart

cardstock
glue
strips of torn 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
with yours
