SandalsMature

The day you broke up with me
I walked a mile 
             In my sandals
Then took them off
                                     and kept walking
I wanted to know what it felt like
To be no one
Nothing
Undefined by the shoes
On my feet
I wanted to know
What it felt like
To feel gravel between my toes
And 
         Anything else
That happened to be in my way
I wanted to know
What it felt like
To be nothing,
Yet trample 
                      everything
I wanted to know
What it felt like
To be you.

The End
