tales from the top shelf

Updated: Jul 3, 2019





the tales from the top shelf


don’t shine enough to be sold

—and nor does their hope

of ever being told


because the dust that engulfs her

becomes suffocating,

her porcelain pose and limbs

are just left there waiting,


as the time melts away

into sunlight to sundown

and the world that she lives in

becomes the emptiest ghost town


for her pretty face

was still easily forgotten

and the cracks in the mask

are decayed and rotten


her stories lost to the very top shelf,

are fading as memories grow old.

she matters not to him, nor to herself,

for what’s a story if never told?
