Your Favorite

You picked me up

like your favorite coffee cup

long forgotten

sitting at the back of the cupboard

a little worn, a little dusty.

A blue ceramic glaze

cool against your lips

as you take a sip

drink me in darling.

Nestled in your strong hands

I felt safe

I felt secure

until I slipped from your grip

and I shattered into

a million pieces.

And now you’ve found

a new cup

to replace me.

It was too easy

for you to throw

my jagged pieces of clay away.
