A Paper Home

I made a home for my heart today, a home of words and thoughts and dreams.

I filled the home with memories, and I fleshed it out with tales, and I furnished it with hopes.

I invited the world in, and I hoped they would not break anything.

The walls shook, and the floor wavered, and the roof sagged.

Their footsteps were like heartbeats, beating on my soul.

If you’re interested in my latest short story, The House of Paper was written in response to the paper filled life I lead. Sometimes, I wish I was surrounded by the trees they came from rather than the white stacks of work to do. 🙂  – Danni
