I take out the paper,
red, pink and silver.
I lay out the best, small scissors and
I carefully fold the colored paper
into two neat halves and slowly cut
the paper heart.
And then another and another.
With the glue,
I place them together, delicately.
I create the perfect, beautiful
I hold this to you and you take it
and tear out a small hole
in the middle.
You hand it back to me
and smile – sweetly.
I am left with a tear in the middle
of my beautiful, beautiful, heart.
