Teddy wonders where she has gone.
A hide-and-seek game should never take this long.
Dusty silence is a bleak host,
and he always feels blue when she’s away.
Beloved and broken
Teddy sits upon a shelf
like a childhood diary, long forgotten… He keeps her wishes and secrets
in stains and stitches.
Cherished and clichéd
Teddy looks over his kingdom.
Once upon a time, he, a brave knight slaying tyrants
and befriending diamond-bellied dragons.
Every scar & every jewel earned in the name of love.
Desired and deserted
Teddy dreams of dancing in the moonlight.
He’s dazzled by the campfire and its scents
…keawe and burnt sugar…stars and sleeping bags…
pieces of a memory neatly folded in the closet.
Teddy waits patiently, only faith keeps him alive.
One day, his best friend will come to mend worries and wounds
