The Box

pandorawallpaper

A beautiful box
Placed on her pillow
Engraved with
His constant promises
Coated with
His golden rules
A small latch
Keeps something inside
Her finger’s loving touch
Breach an opening
Scent of escape flees
Gold falls as dust
Engravings fade as vapor
A beating heart
Revealed inside nestled
Within his written note
That reads
“I’m sorry”
