In our tenth year
This book, this page, this harebell laid to rest.
Phrase 1

Between these sheets, these leaves,
if pressed still bleeds
of the way we were

Meaning and Analysis
'Harebell' represents and symbolizes many things.it could be as a feeling like humility and grief or a memory.
'laid to rest' could represents a bad marriage.
