shallow
by louise arnold

writing

He tied her up with soft words
And bound her down with dirt
Gentle touches and shallow soil
To hide away the hurt.
She used to dance like fire,
And cry like she was rain,
And the hands that forced the tears inside
Would wipe them away again.
She walked like she was porcelain,
Afraid that she would shatter
Afraid she’d fall from the shelf one day
And it wouldn’t even matter.
He planted her like tulips,
He planted her under snow
He planted her with a parting kiss
In a place where flowers don’t grow.

touching and well crafted!

I found your words deeply moving
and yes, ...somewhat haunting.
