A dog curled up, hiding from the rain
A collar around his neck with a faded name.
A necklace sitting untouched in a drawer,
Never to see light again.
A baby placed in front of an orphanage,
With a hastily written note and an envelope filled with money.
A man without a home, sitting on the sidewalk
Sounds of bombs and guns ripping through his head.
A fish floating belly-up in the aquarium
Soon to be flushed down the toilet.
Loved then put aside.
