Confetti paper heart
Stapled to my chest
So easily torn away
Into colorful strips of paper
Beautiful yet weak
Vulnerable
To the slightest gust of wind
To every tiny drop of water
To any single flash of flame
Gullible
So easily persuaded by
Precarious winds of change
A single lonely teardrop
Any single word simply whispered
Colorful strips of paper
Floating away in the slightest Semblance of a heart
Ragged holes where staples once
Held it to my chest
My paper confetti heart
