Confetti Heart

Confetti Heart

A Poem by Dressed in Poetry

My heart (always heavy)

Fell like confetti

From the sky –

Cut by a machete

That shone high

As it flew

From you

To my chest,

Hitting true,

Laying me to rest.

I like the contrasts you create with confetti and machete. Confetti symbolizing a party or good time but cut by a machete-- like a very bad party. Stark imagery-- I like the brevity here as well.
