Origami

Origami

heart
crumples with loss
a paper folded into
origami miniatures
curls into the fetal position
life fibers weakened by
tears

pray for strength to live
pray for air to breathe
pray for heartbeats to continue
pray for hope to rise

my heart breaks
a bystander
without power to
change the outcome
without power to
smooth complicated
origami folds
