Paper Doll




His words caught her eye,

She’d read a poem, story or both

Before the ink was dry she’d sent him a little note


She cut him from the page

Said, “yes, I think you’ll do”

Dressed him in her mind the way she wanted to


She keeps him in a drawer

Pulls him out when she wants to play

She tells him that she loves him,

That he’ll be real one day


Two dimensions are more fun

The rules are easy to make

He hopes when she unfolds him next,

His paper heart won’t break
