The Heart Said to the Traveler

If you happen to come across my heart in the woods

tell it to stay there

because it hasn’t proved very useful to me for many years now.

If it happens to sneer and snarl

or be a nuisance in general

then trap it in a bubble yum bubble

for it does not recognise candyfloss kindness

and has nothing to compare an innocent traveller’s sincerity to.

If you happen to make it smile ,a rare occasion indeed,

then remember hearts and flowers are delicate creatures

with soft petals

that catch the tiny tears of  raindrops

with persistent roots

that will laugh in the face of time

and storms.

If you happen to come across my heart in the woods

throw it a tea party

and make it laugh please.

Then place a tiny flag exactly where you found it

so you’ll always remember where you left it.

I'm that girl that looks badass in her black boots reading Gothic Psychoanalytic Lit but really just wants to pew pew pew with someone.
