Origami

I wrote you little notes
Folded them into paper dolls
And sent them floating along a river of tears
I bent each seam perfectly
Like the edges you molded into me
Fragile like the weight of trust
The burden of too much love
So many words I could never bring myself to say
Now lost in an endless flood


Maybe someone downstream will find one
Collect it's folded soul
And take every word to heart
Maybe, someday, when the river is emptied
And every word is tied to meaning
The world will be granted the gift of you


I wrote you little notes
Folded them into paper dolls
And sent them floating along a river of dreams


If every note dissolves into oblivion
At least part of you was sent out into the fray
And even if sending your memory yields no results
I could just rewrite them all anyway

Author's Notes/Comments: 

#187 Origami
"When something like a soul becomes initialized
And folded up like paper dolls and little notes
You can't expect a bit of hope
And while you're outside looking in
Describing what you see
Remember what you're staring at is me" -- Stone Sour Through Glass

Stepping ouside the

Stepping ouside the self

sending watermarked notes

about you to anyone

who can fish.

.

Waiting for a reply

is the same thing as

wishing for a dream

to become reality.

.

Sending more paper

souls to reap tides

that ebb and neap

I will obediently hope

for your return.

Exceptional :)

The underlying message of this inspiration was along the lines of Rascall Flatts' What hurts the most.
"Sending more paper souls to reap tides"
That line made the poem for me
Glad I could inspire
