OLD TOY

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I’m an old toy
up on a shelf
replaced by a new one
I’m all by myself

I’m not bright and shiny
I’m older it’s true
though just as much fun
as one that is new

but she’s put me away
it’s not what I wanted
no longer her playmate
this closet is haunted

with
        memories
             of
                  her

    1. Hi Vanessa, Yes, it is/was back in the dark days. Isn’t it sad that we have to feel such pain to have a good flow of words?? I’m trying to write while happy (which I am now, 17 years and counting). Thanks for asking, I’m good! And You???
