if you could

This post is part of a series called 100 Days of Poetry.


ll the poems I want to tell you, All the
things I want to give away and watch you take
from me: 


if you could just put your hand on my heart: 
these are the words I don’t know how to write


from the closet of my wardrobe heart.

hung on hangers, taped inside of shoe boxes
stacked three deep in the back of the attic. 
Where old dresses and hats and 
gloves and high heels litter the rafters. 

Dig around in there, excavate my soul.

if you could 
just put your hand 

on 
my 
heart
