THE FORGOTTEN by - LemonFluffPudding
I lie in the pitch blackness of the toy chest wondering why, how, she could do this
to me. How dare she forget about her lovely Emeline!
I have always been there when her tears ran, I stood by her through all the sorrow.
I forgave her the day she left me under her bed. But now she has gone too far!
Once I sat upon the shelf admired by all, now I am beneath a mass of bedding,
forgotten by my beloved.
When shall I see the daylight again? Will this torture ever end? Will I be here for
eternity, never dying? Will no child ever lift me into the air again?
How long has it been since they closed the lid and fastened the latch? Am I to be
alone until the day someone finds me and throws me away? Is this how my time in the sun
Shall I never again see her shining face as she calls out "Emeline!" and scoops me
off the shelf? Will her laughter never ring in my ears again?
Am I truly so quickly forgotten?
