Some Stuff About Me:

My photo
I'm a Minnesota Girl, living in the south. I tell my friends I try not to talk and think like a Yankee, but sometimes I slip up!

WRAPPED.... today's poem

I wrote this a year ago....


The time when you
Could break my heart
Has come
And gone.

I have wrapped it carefully
In fine linen and
Placed it in the pantry
Where you’ll not reach it.

Tempted? I won't be tempted
To give it again....
In a moment
Of heat and anguish.

Oh, Quid, this is so beautifully melancholy and painful. I do hope that you unwrap your heart and put it back and give love another chance. Remember that the cracks let the light in. Love & Blessings!

I agree with Marion..."beautifully melancholy".

Where do you find such perfect photos/graphics to go with your poetry?!

Not only do I love this, Quid, I also love the too perfect photo!!

Your poetry always moves me!
