Heart Shaped Leaves


Why couldn’t we have met sooner?
Maybe a month or two before

You didn’t even get a chance,
to take a second glance,
to see if he’s the one for you.
And now I’m sitting here,
contemplating if life
is ever fair.

you’ve opened up a gate
an entry way to somewhere i didn’t think existed
a place where love still blooms
negatives spirals and transforms into positives
a place where i feel that it’s safe to finally,
