Daggers + Doorways

Poetry On Odyssey: 'Daggers + Doorways'

A leaf amongst branches


Knowing your core won't belong
The way mine does to you
Is like daggers in my chest,

But I have armor laced with trapdoors
Leading to unmarked forked paths,
So I'll survive,

A leaf amongst branches
Crisscrossing hopes and beliefs
I will have been;

Even if I don't forever remain green,
Even if my armor may rust,
Even if you unknowingly hold me.
