Letter opener

Letter opener

A Poem by Hayley

I want to open my arm

like a knife to a letter,

so swift-

to see little red flowers

dot between my eyes

like an Indian girl

 

Maybe they are tears

but I can’t get rid of (you)

run through my blood.

Quietly breathes... I haven't stopped by for a bit. But I did today.

You ever sit outside
while the snow falls?
The blanket covers all the dark
and the misty breath forms
droplets ...to hide the tears.
Sometimes I can even FEEL
and the shiver enwraps my heart
and cracks the chill ice.

thank you so much!
Sometime words can take us to places we desire to escape. I like the use of the letter opener. The ending left the reader with thoughts to ponder. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.
