Not an old shoe

Little-shoe-Vidya-Sury

Two

We come in pairs.

Separate

But incomplete

Without the other.

Like a couple.

Who usually lives together for most of their lives.

Sometimes

They don’t.

Death, divorce, time, distance

Accidents, misunderstandings,

Pairing with another mismatched shoe

Leaves one solitary

Forgotten

A little useless.

What can you do with one shoe?

Throw it out.

That holds good for shoes.

Not people.

A person alone

Is still worthwhile.

A person alone

Is not an old shoe.

About Kalpanaa

Trying to change the world one blog post at a time. I write. It's the best thing I can do. I am the Hanged Man, the Fool, the sometime Magician. Whether I travel in my imagination or in real life I always enjoy myself. I read books, I review. I eat, I review. I watch plays, I review. I have an opinion on everything. At other times I heal people through yoga and/or foot reflexology.
