Voices from Cinderella- part 3

The Other Slipper


Abandoned
in the prime of my life!
Dropped!
Separated from my mate!

She-Who-Wore-Me
liked me well enough
while dancing.
Then she dropped me!

He-Who-Picked-Me-Up
cherished me at first.
Now, I, who was made for
small feet, must suffer.

Each day, a tougher trial.
Heavy, ugly, big feet
pushing down on my very sole!
Oh! I shuffle with pain!
Oh!I shudder silently!
The threat of shattering!
Oh! The strain on a shoe!

Why? I demand to know why!
When will he search for my mate?
When will we step together again?


The Last Poem will be: Father's Peace
