Daisy white demitasse,
With asymmetrically chipped edges,
Around the circumference,
Preserved in the clinquant coffin of metaphors.
Copious taunts and rejections,
Strive to camouflage themselves,
In the frayed sleeves of blue sweater,
Bequeathed with love.
Bronze tinted first love letter,
Fragile as butterfly's wings,
Presented with exhilarating angst,
Tucked away beneath the raiments.
Bits and pieces,
Preserved for eternity,
The moribund soul,
Sometimes with kisses, and,
Sometimes with knives.
