small thing

I just want to be so very small 

Enough so that I could safely fit in a pocket 

Be scooped up 

Spooned in 


Held tightly 

Endlessly Protected 

And be marveled at 

Too tiny to need to do anything 

Too little to be forgotten 

Just so damn teeny weeny that all there is for me is love 

People will say I’m cuter than their baby or new puppy

I will say I agree

My feelings won’t ever get too big for my body, they’ll fit in just right 

No one’s ever been this tiny before, so I will get an award 

I will stay like this & live forever 

I’m never getting any bigger
