kiss my melancholy
kiss my regrets
silence them forever
like a never told vignette
kiss my yesterdays
bid them all adieu
the illusions I cherished
the dreams that never came true
kiss my pain
caress my history
come unfold my heart
like a tender origami

  1. That is a very sweet poem! It’s a like a swan, a swan I make out of paper. It’s the only origami I know, but like your words it’s wonderful when it’s finished for all to see.
    When you pull the tail, the wings flap, and it flies! That’s the truth.

  3. So evocative, and beautiful cadence of the lines and rhymes, almost as though the poem itself is being folded (when you read it back having read the last line). You’re very talented! x
