The Box

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;
the scent of escape flees, the gold falls as dust
and the engravings fade as vapor.

A beating heart revealed inside nestled
within his written note that reads:
“I’m sorry.”

  1. I love when other poets write short yet enticing poems that gives me goosebumps. The photo also added a nice touch to this post. Nice job! 🙂
