Disposable

by PammyMcB

Disposable are the things she no longer needs
All broken, tattered, and frayed
All used up empty shells of what they used to be
Representations of days long gone by

Disposable are the things she no longer needs
Old gems, poems, flowers gone dead
Promises given and taken through her lifetime
Representations of her love’s last lie

Disposable are the things she no longer needs
Words ripping through her crushed soul
All wasted syllables do not mean the same thing
Representations of the pleads, dead eyes

Disposable are the things he no longer needs
She’s broken, tattered, and frayed
A used up empty shell of what she used to be
Representation of a faithful wife.
