other foot

Picture Credit: Reymundo

propels one to sin
I fly high
indulging in hedonist delight
you never bought me other shoe
I limped the streets
your lover watching from the boulevard
laughed at my dilemma
I loved the feel of air, sunlight
on my unshod foot-
catching myself in random visors

"who needs more than one sexy pump?"

Brian Miller said...

brenda w said...

mmmm....chocolate, who needs shoes?

The Poet said...

I am a complete chocoholic. The thoughts swirling around in my head right now are too sinful to leave here, so I'll just smile and say...nice one Gautami!

Jannie Funster said...

This is a wow, Gautami!

Such a gorgeous chocolate shoe image, and words your heart and mind were swept away to.

Hope all is well in your sphere, and that rains have washed aplenty? Or are you still waiting?

here is my 55

There is so much to delight in with this poem. Congratulations.

Jae Rose said...

There is definitely humour here..and a little defiance..I love the attitude of the naked much as the one in the decadent pump..Jae

I love the image of the air and sunlight on your unshod foot. Lots of symbolism here! I like the pictures, too!

The single-shoe hobble is both a frustration, the search for the other, and a need to remove the one.

What can I say? We're torn in our actions in every which-way.
