In Creases

I could feel my heart folding itself
like one of those kirigami stars
when you spoke so sweetly

My words became frantic, flitting about like fireflies
as they spat wishes upon the blank midnight sky

Perhaps I thought I could steal you from everyone, 
press you like paper
in the creases of my dream

but darling, this exquisite moment
is starting to unfold
and you're not here to smooth it 

don't go
