did you replace your heart shaped key


love letter never shared
never signed
nor placed in the mail

words on a sheet
crying to be heard
like a wounded bird

cursive thoughts
weaving sad stories
short and never-ending

lost inside words
images burn bright
only to fade away

unfolded like a map
pressed by cold hands
tracing all the creases

refolded and returned
jewelry box without song
safeguards empty promises

february two thousand sixteen
