Packed Away - Poem by Jennifer L Granville
The time shall come
When I will pack away this sadness
Like a soft woolen sweater
On the first humid day.
And into the dark recesses
Of that safely locked trunk,
What else shall be so securely stowed
From light and life?
What part of me will be held, sealed
Safe as a holy relic
Tucked in under the neat folds
Of my disembraced sadness?
Or worse still
What parts of you
What further part of you, my love
Can I possibly give up?
Even for sadness,
