A Sad Gift

Recommended Posts

Dusty Boxes

Boredly Tetris stacked 

Despite the Egg-shell objects inside

With Sharpied Names in squiggly uncoordinated chicken Scratch 

Forgotten but not all at once

Wanted but unwanted 

Memories trapped in corrugated paper 

Smothered in Bubble wrap and Old Newspaper comics 

Hearts strung up in bows 

left among tea cups

and fine China 





Author note: To be honest I do want them... it's just I am terrified of Moving them from their basement corner.  But then I can also see such vivid day dreams of being older and in my own house with my own dining room with them proudly displayed... I don't want to lose something that was so important to her and So special to me.
