diamond horses
sit on grandmere's 
shelf
perfectly sculpted
into blocky angles
i reached up a hand
and grabbed 
a stallion
with rubies
for eyes. 

i dropped it,
my tiny fingers
failed to hold on.

and i watched
the thing
splinter into
pieces of heaven
along with the light in
grandmere's
eyes.

    all of your work touches my heart! idk, there's something about it.... they are short and the word choice is amazing always a personal connection and the formatting and like whatever you write about can be metaphors for life or something.... love this! <3
