Fractal Hearts - Poem by Mary Rowena

I like the way we are now
Hope I have that dizzy effect on you
Although I’ve got a cartoon face
And you have kind of squinty eyes
We probably don’t look the part
But to me it’s no compromise

You should maybe ring me more often
I won’t ask you to though
Won’t ask anything of you
If you’re not happy, I’m in prison
I’m talking about missing you
Don’t hear, just listen

Yes I should try to accept my mother
But when you shout, all I hear is her
Concerned and sometimes says “Hi”
Yet unable to reach me

I’d kill for an adventure, just you and I
In a city without eyes
We’d probably climb trees or jump a river
If I’m lucky you might throw me in
Then I can sink and every hushed phoneme
Would be blurred as if the air had thinned

Love is like light in our city
The clouds are made of kites
The water’s made from paint
And the trees replace the tykes
Not a single snowflake falls
Because we stole their fractal figures
We placed them in our beating balls

Catch your balance boy
We’re going to this place
I’m going to write it in thick colour
So you won’t forget
I’m falling off the edge!
“What would you regret? ”
