One day

Well hello :) It seems June escaped without a single posting. I hope my unintentional absence wasn't noticed...!

I sat down with grand plans to write a poem about Icarus and this next post appeared... I'm not quite sure what happened along the way, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

One day

One day I’ll press a paper heart
And place it in a small gift box
So you have something to look back on
And know you were loved…
A lot.
I’ll squeeze in all the memories
And dry out all the fears
Just so you can hold the paper heart…
But don’t revive it with your tears
Or one day you’ll feel that fragile heart
And notice all the cracks
Then watch it crumble to confetti
And realise time cannot turn back.
