    dotsFor Herdots

    She was silky yet silent, bold yet repressed
    Her face was drawn up in perplexion, as she
    Turned the thing through her hand.
    It was red and soft, shy and quiet as she
    Rolled it through her fingers and quietly
    Tucked it away into her pocket.

    All I could do was watch as she moved
    And took it with her. I keep around her
    As much as I can, wondering if maybe someday
    I might gain the nerve to demand it back.
    For now though, it sits there amidst lint
    Humble against debris in the blackness
    Of that pocket, longing to yet again be
    Set free.

    She did not reject it, she did not embrace it
    She merely wanted to own it in an offhanded way.
    It needs light and warmth to thrive, yet
    She only sometimes remembers it's even there.
    But those days when she retrieves it,
    Even for just a moment are bliss.

    I see the look in her eyes as she holds it
    And I feel whole again. She takes my hands
    Into hers and kisses me deeply and in that
    Split second it's worth all the darkness
    And the loneliness and the longing.

    But then, she thrusts it back into hiding,
    And I quietly pine for the next time that
    I can have the privilege of feeling her touch
    Of taking my own hands across her skin
    Of holding her and hearing her sweet voice
    Because it's all that matters.

      I felt this deeply, it is a refreshing perspective and quite a unique way you tell the story of the heart being kept as a souvenir and made me feel it. It came across with an air of sincerity but a layered type of feeling also, I have to say I enjoyed it quite a bit.
