Don't Touch

Climbing carelessly across crimson crystals
Why were words wished away when
Mommy mumbled ‘move from my room’
She saw something slip solemnly
From frustrated fragile fingers
I tried to tug the treasures down
But tiny tots can’t try to be tough
Dazzling diamonds danced down to doom
Beautiful box breaks bity baby ‘boom’
Crimson crown cascading through carpet
A damaged dear, because I refused to hear

“My jewelry box is heavy, move away from baby.”
