Empty Shoes

Always trying
on others’ shoes
and carrying guilt
for those who have none,
shoes nor guilt,

my empty shoes
are waiting
and you never
try them on.

    oh yes I read this on pft. the one I thought was angry, but I see that it can also be sad. disappointing. and hopeless.

    So beautifully concise and expressive, this is a real jewel. Annie x

    Nine lines, but they convey a great deal of descriptiveness. Good write Kathryn.

    Another example of your fabulous imagination! I'm happy to be your first reviewer... there should be many more! Love, Keith
