The One Where I'm Footloose And Fancy Free.

Dear Lover,

It's very hard for me.
This societal norm.
I speak of course, of wearing shoes.
I was barefoot throughout childhood, you see.
So if you walk into the kitchen.
And see a set of toes tapping.
Or take a look beneath my office desk.
And see a pair of homeless heels.
It's just me, trying to reclaim that sense of freedom.

  1. Ohh I love this letter! My husband always teases me about my bare feet. And I rarely wear shoes under my desk at work. :)
