Paper Ribcage

Fair, as simple stars,

Heartbreak lurching

From paper ribcage.

We are taken down

The burning movie reel,

Two imprints memorized

Then lost in an instant.

Fumes and flames, burn hot,

And paper ribcage glows somber.

Simple hearts of foolish flare,

Don’t see the flame within

Scathe their utmost fragility.
