On The Shelf (triple tanka)

Lonely on the shelf 
Like a doll waiting for play.
No one to talk to
Whilst you go about your day.
I’m set aside, forgotten. 

But I’ll be right here
Waiting until you return. 
Nothing is different 
Your needs come first. Mine second. 
I’ll wait for your arrival. 

Lonely on the shelf
Where you’ve hidden me away
I sit patiently 
At least for now I will wait
Someday you’ll find the shelf cold.
