Sorrow Shelved

image borrowed from bing

sorrow shelved

sorrow shelved
is a funny thing –
it does not collect
dust, and no spider
leans a corner of her
home against it

out of the corner
of the eye, sorrow
pristine, newly
polished, easily,
too easily,
within reach

i am not ready
i am not prepared
i am a sliver of
myself, approaching
another anniversary
of our loss, not whole
