Based on a true story.
Now I apologise to those of you wanting me to get in front of the cam - still awaiting my technology! The poems won't wait however - so here is another reading video - BUT - when the little pink box opens in the poem - you may find Sunbeam hiding somewhere in there.I'm shy ;).xx
LITTLE PINK BOX
He packed me away, in a little pink box
A sweet, little box. A little pink box.
He packed me away in a little pink box
So he could try and forget me.
He tucked all my treasures in a little pink box
And wrapped them in tissue, so softly forlorn
He tucked me away in a little pink box
So he would always know where to find me.
So he could caress me and hold me close
Remember my wonders, ponder our shared joy
Keep me all to himself, in silky imprisonment
He locked me away in a little pink box
So no-one else could ever find me
Each day all alone, he guiltily visits me
Pulls out each token, each photograph, my image to see
Touches my face, feels the warmth of my smile
Lets his heart open, lets his soul fly free for a while
And just for a moment, he has me back in his arms
There was no goodbye, I still see his charms
And just for a moment, our love is still there
In my heart, in his, all around us, in air
Then he shuts me away in that sweet little box
That only he gets to see
He hopes one day, he will forget
He will move on, have no regrets
He hopes the lies he told will fade
The wrongs he did, the way he betrayed
The reason I said goodbye will turn to dust
And all that will be left of what was us
Will lie within this pretty pink box
Of hazy, hazy memories
But try as we might to tuck away
Those feelings we felt another day
Our hearts won't be told when we try to force them
Soul bonds once formed aren't so easily broken
So day after day, he locks me away
In the little pink box, by his side I will stay
He locks his heart too and hopes no one will see
The secret he keeps hidden.
The secret that's me.
He locked me away in a little pink box.
I wonder when I will fly free
