My Moon

Poetry

“And I can’t help it.
That I find it so difficult to put
my heart in someone else’s hands.”

Of all the secrets I’ve ever told, she is the only one that ever kept them all hidden deep within her heart. As if her life depended on them. As if they were what sustained her. I suppose that’s why I’ll always choose to confide in her. Because she is my constant. And I can’t help it. That I find it so difficult to put my heart in someone else’s hands.

Maybe it’s because
something so fragile
is going to be vulnerable,
if I let it go.
