On The Shelf (Tanka)

Updated on July 4, 2015

She’s left on the shelf,

Gathering dust and sharp looks

His return takes time

Time fleeting..running-hooves-like

Towards a deep pitch-dark night

      Yes my dear Theresa,

      Very true .I agree with that,Waiting is painful. Forgetting is also painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering as Paulo Coelho says.
