Second-Hand - Poem by JENIE FRANKSAY

The ring with misplaced stone,
Your guitar pluck made of bone,
Wrappers of chocolates you once gave,
And envelopes of friendly exchanges.
Are not with me now..
coz i have thrown some of them,
and burned some of them.
Because they reminded me of you,
Because theyg made me weak,
Because they were not worth to be
in my wardrobe shelves.

The pages from my diary
with your talks in it,
are going to find themselves
in some municipal trashcans.
Shattered, crumpled, half-burnt.
Coz i hate distractions.
Coz it was all your game,
Coz you were a mistake.
Coz you are so much fake.
And someone else was into your ducts,
And i hate second hand products.

    There is a typo at the end of my comment before. Please read who wants to be you and not a next someone. (Report) Reply

    Yes, avoid second hand products like pest. I am sure there was some pain with it. But, it is all well-done and for the good, particularly when the person concerned is an indefatigable optimist like you who want you and not a next someone. Great. Again 10. (Report) Reply
