Thoughts painted here..please take a walk with me
Email Poem | Today's Poetry
Propped up
In a forgotten corner
Sits an old stuffed bear
One that was
once held and loved
Her arms
Now worn and ragged
She can no longer
Reach out
And no one reaches
For her

As she sits
Her weary head
Falls to one side
Her eyes
That were once
So filled with love
Of them
one is now missing
She can no longer
Find her way
And no one
Sees her

So long 
Had she sat there
So much now
That time ceased to mean
Her mind grey and cloudy
Her memories
All but gone now
Fading like her coat 
Of worn fur
She no longer
Thinks clearly
And no one
Thinks of her

Do they even know
She is here
She feels
Long since forgotten

As if for the first time
She is lifted from 
Her lonely corner

She needed repair
she needed to be loved

but never
Was there one
More broken
Certainly never one
Less worth fixing

Never one needing it so much
or one that deserved it more
