flowers

i want to take the bits of you i love
and press them like flowers
between the pages of my favourite book

and i want to take all the scraps
that you dislike about yourself
and display them on my refrigerator
to show you i’m still proud
of the person you are
and the person you are becoming

but most of all, i want to spin you like a globe
and drag my finger across til it stops
to discover the pieces of you
that you’ve yet to reveal to anyone else

and i want to wrap them up in linen
and place them in and old cigar box,
i’d tuck it away safely
in the top drawer of my bedside table,
so you know i’ll never let
those pieces of you go

because when you share
hidden parts of yourself
with someone else,
you’re trusting that person
to hold the secret sections
of your heart
and to love the bits
you thought
were unlovable
