Beautiful shoes

Five steps in beautiful,
painful shoes
sends your legs trembling.
The heel’s sharp pang
will crumple you through city walks
and searches for a place
to rest.
An elegant shoe fits nowhere
in hectic lives
of uncertainty.
The beautiful shoes sigh
on the shelf,
for they have passed more
wistful stares,
and hopeful trials.
The sister shoe--the practical sneaker
that can pound through runs on cement,
snuggles onto confused feet.
They are nice shoes,
even found in a pleasing box.
Pleasant shoes for not so pleasant
memories--
and on sale, too!
The sister shoe will take you
on your journey for a settled spot,
a spot where you can once more visit
the beautiful, painful shoes.
Once the sister sneaker wears out,
she will be thrown onto the shelf, only to find
an elegant, sharp, painful shoe in her place.
