A Paper Airplane

My Heart's a paper airplane.
Got a paper airplane for a heart. 
Don't need no big propeller. 
Just a breeze to get my start. 
Just a breeze to get me up there. 
Feeling good, and light, and free. 
But it's just a paper airplane. 
So, don't get rough with me. 
'Cause if you go and step on it, 
Then my heart don't fly so well. 
And if you go and step on it, 
Can I fix it? I can't tell. 
I'll try to mend it, fix it up, straighten it up... 
And then?
Wait for the next breeze of love
To send it high again.

You know how everyone has that really old book of poetry that usually stays hidden in your sock drawer... never to see the light of day? Well, that's where this came from. 
my poetry book. complete with gel pens
Today I'm linking up with Anne for Wednesday Wishes. 
Love the Here and Now
I'm not making a wish though. I'm granting one this week. My IRL bestie Amanda wished for me to share more poetry, that's exactly what I'm doing today. 
I do also wish that y'all have a fabulous day and don't be scared to share that poetry that's been hiding!
