A Toddler's Tragedy

Don't Touch

by raincascade

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 bitty baby ‘boom’

Crimson crown cascading through carpet

A damaged dear, because I refused to hear

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