Paper Heart

by braveandrecklessblog

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

  1. Welcome to poets corner a lovely start

  2. Loved the focus on each tiny item, detail and feeling in “close up” and then how you ended up pulling back for the wider shot for the ending. Very well done!!!
