Closed Book...


I'm not happy with myself...
I'm an unpicked book in the top shelf...

Dust settling over as time passes...
No more top corner folds or behind the back creases...

There isn't any glance up here...
Forgotten and left out I fear...

I remember being open...
Every line being read while munching a bun...

From morning shine till night's dim light...
Never putting me down, that hold was tight...

Laughter, thrill, adventure was my magic...
I sure use to give her imagination a kick...

Gone are those days...
But I still try for her one gaze...

Old and read I'm...
Hope I could rewrite myself like a programme...

I know I won't again give you that kick...
But don't forget I was your pick...

It was beautiful crafted wooden piece by Daniel himself as a birthday present to her. She loved fairy tales which Daniel used to tell her during bed time. And unicorn was her favourite mythical creature. She loved the noise the unicorn's legs made on the wooden table when she used to make it walk. It sounded like a real horse shoe would sound!   And then suddenly the unicorn slipped from her hand and fell to the floor breaking the horn. She couldn't bare the loss, tears started dripping from her eyes. She
