Stuff

Closets, Cabinets

Treasures galore

I’m stuck on the shelf

Completely ignored

No room to breath

Dust in my mouth

Lonely and tattered

Tarnished and scratched

Free me from hiding

And further decay

Give me away

No longer delay

My time has come

To go away.

  1. I realize that your note specified this was about removing items that were just gathering dust but I could imagine it’s also a good analogy for relationships that have stagnated, feeling neglect after so many years and it was time to move on. I like that I could grab another meaning from your writing. 🙂
