The Couch

In the corner my place,

Awaiting the comfort of embrace

I am beautiful.

Rejection is commonplace

Swallowing pride

Asking is a wimp’s style.

Disgust is the loving reply

Needs hibernate in the North Pole

Home is anywhere but home.

Patiently waiting

Knowing my day draws nigh

Aching tired feet: surely have need of comfort.

Yet shunned by cold smelly feet

Hope resides in another lifetime

In a reject store

A new friend

I just might find.
