Folding

  1. You weren't there again when things began to slide away from me.
  2. And in a flash
  3. I saw all the ways I had begun to make myself small for you
  4. Matching my sharp corners and folding them into something unrecognizable.
  5. You were taking my wide openness
  6. And making your paper heart.
  7. So
  8. I lit a match.
