love hung in her closet



love hung in her closet


Love hung in her closet
like a lonely dress
no longer in style
If I told her
that dress was made for her
would she wear it
one more time
She looks beautiful in love
She wears it well
One day I may tell her
Perhaps, I never will
If I don’t
it will always hurt
to know
Love hung in her closet
it was never worn
for me

  1. It’s been a while since I read one of your poems – probably me just not having enough time. But what a great one to see! So eloquently and cleverly written. There’s probably a lot of love out there just hanging like dresses – people afraid or putting love to the back of life’s commitments.


    1. Smiling. I was away for almost seven weeks. Went to Cancun then came back to travel within ther United States. The little hiatus helps recharge the batteries.
      Happy you liked the metaphor. Sadly, there is a lot of love out there hanging in closets.

      Thank you for your kimnd words. I will be visiting you tomorrow. Thank you
