Yours (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

It is yours now. Take it. Accept it as you would a ring from your betrothed. Keep it as you would a glass sphere. Treasure it as you would your life.

As a symbol of my never ending trust in your love I readily give you my heart. Encased in this tiny little box is the one thing I never give away. Until this day, it is yours. I wrapped it with fine brown wrapping paper and a little white ribbon. If you so wish to unwrap it, do so when you are ready to unbox this precious gift. And if you ever wish to unbox this gift, do so when you feel ready to handle the complexities that underly the task of keeping it safe. Lest you keep it closed and wrapped.

In the occurrence that you do open this box, be reminded that it’s content is highly fragile but still prone to free fall. Behold I give you my heart, my love and my my entire self with absolute sincerity. Behold I give of myself, in the humbleness of this little box, I am yours.
