Heart Shaped Box

Christine Ray – What in youth was simple

Brave & Reckless

of my heart
so crisp
so clear
at sixteen
when I was
when did lines begin
to shift
blurred beneath
the brushstrokes
of midnight blue
leaving more hidden
than revealed
when did this heart
become mystery
to myself?
a puzzle box of sandalwood
warm to the touch
but contents evasive
always a fingertip
out of my reach
