Shoes

A Poem by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

Inspired by the photo...

"



I was your favorite before
Even if you still have more
You always enjoy my company
No other good things you saw except me

They envied that I am your favorite
With me you felt like your day is complete
I teased them that I own your heart
You never liked them from the very start

But one day I saw you as a different one
I thought you won't walk away or shun
You don't go with me just like before
You have found another pair and then find more

I wish you will notice me in this corner
Between us there still no border
I wish like before I am still in your heart
And wear me as your favorite shoes like in the start...

it made me think na somethings are not everlasting... i guess sometimes some changes brought us a little further to what was, but that doesn't mean you'll stop loving the past, you just have to find a way how to love then more in another way... :) this is really deep... in the sense of our human nature... bravo, pretty friend!

That was humorous, and it reminds me of how my wife looks at inanimate things -- she is always afraid she might 'offend' something like by showing too much attention to something else. She feels guilty throwing away old clothes, as if she was betraying them. it's an odd way of looking at non-living things, but I have found it is more common than people care to admit. Well done, Dhaye.

Thank you so much for the kind words and the little story about your wife, Eddie.
How absolutely adorable this is. Love the personification of the shoes! I have some oldies in the back of the closet that must be crying! :) Lydi**

Thank you, Lydi.
Cute, and so true. I have a pair of running shoes so worn out and old looking, but when I am looking for something to put on to do a small errand, I always choose them. I like the metaphor you have used here.

Hi, Noel! Thank you for dropping by.
some collect lovers like shoes, and always get them with the size just loose enough that they can slip out of them easily enough, in order to move on to another pair...

Thank you so much, sir J.
Aw - i never felt that I would ever get emotional over a pair of shoes - I have had my own favourite trainers I must admit though which I hated to see go. This si classic Dhaye. The picture you've added is soo stylish too. Very artistic emsemble, the whole.
POV of shoes - whatever next?
I loved this Dhaye - left-field and very entertaining.

Mmmm..I would usually buy shoes when my favorite is almost worn out. :) You are very good at personification, Dhaye. Like the shoes in your piece, it makes me wonder why some people would suddenly change their attitude towards us? Last line of last stanza, i think there's typo there :)
