{From Paris with Love}

I found the gift from your business trip

the tiniest token of your affection,

the smallest showcase of your love,

the grandest gesture I ever needed,

to know where I belonged.

I found the Paris Pen.

I miss you.

I miss then.

I miss Paris…

…and the earrings filled with so much love and lust

that someone else dared to steal them from us.

The souvenirs of our partnership

coveted by those in darker homes

seeking treasures to ignite light in the shadows.

So, I hope he glides them into her sweet, kitten ears

as you would’ve mine.

As he will the fluffy Parisian slippers

onto her milky, soft feet

that I hope are just her size.

She deserves it.

And so did I.

Paris, France // 2008
