The Shelves of Our Hearts

Written by: Bridget Prewitt

Broken toys 
hopeless dreams
shattered snow globes
ripping seams

Empty lockets
burnt out lights
rusting metal
flightless kites 

Here on these shelves,
a small corner of our hearts,
sit the unwanted items
and the lonely broken parts,

But, to make room for  more
these shelves are to be clean
maybe we can fill them,
with the pleasant things we've seen.
