♥Paper Doll Hearts

I'm Rosie, doomed to be eternally lost in
an endlessness of weathered words,
wide eyed dreams, berry stained lips,
old libraries, salty tears, colourful bruises, forgotten histories, hearts on sleeves, college stresses, young love, old Hollywood, London nights, endless rains, child-like allergies, summer freckles, daring hopes, winter butterflies and eternal whimsey......

Sometimes I forget to breathe and I don’t know which wildflower I called my favourite - I was so certain once. Everything is different now - though nothing is. I climbed twelve flights that day, twelve, and I still didn’t see the tree you spoke of; but this is how you said it would be when I left the mountains behind. 
I still don’t know why your threats sound so like promises; for I know they lie tame, listless in the bottom of rain barrels and within the imprints marking the grass weeks after the circus has left; 
and I, child of rain, still watch the sky through puddles and lift my umbrella so water droplets pearl along the crown of my head. You said I wouldn’t hear the trees anymore, but I still do.
