Glass Jar

I put you in a glass jar tucking you away on my deepest shelf

My reason?

Curiously, to keep me safe and my best memories warm

I peered in every so often to check and see if you were still present and well adored

A dangerous balance

Close and an arm’s length away

The jar gave me what I needed

Reflective of what life had taught me at the time

Space and a soundless reminder of who I am

Values that reside steady and strong as much as they will long

What I didn’t understand

The jar that kept you deep inside my heart

What I didn’t quite see

Was that I simply needed

To set you free

~Alisa Hutton
