Poem: Toy

Here's a poem I wrote ^_^ Inspired by me randomly buying a Kinder Surprise today... ah, the nostalgia.

The familiar white and orange wrapping
Is slowly peeled away
And the two chocolate halves
Are pried apart
Almost exact halves
Of milk and cocoa symmetry.
They reveal
A pale orange-yellow plastic case
Which contain
The pieces of a small child's toy.

Bit by bit
Part by part
I build it
Reveling in the memories
Of my childhood.
This toy
Is so familiar
To the ones I had
But nothing like them
At all.

And now the little lion
Sits on my bedside table
Just like any other toy
That I used to have
And maybe there will be a day
When it too
Is forgotten

  2. Oh, this poem was really good. And it's true too.. sadly. ;_; I remember also every now and then in my childhood getting a Kinder surprise egg. xD I don't really remember anymore what they tasted like.. but they were yummy. Maybe I should buy one again just for the nostalgic feeling it would bring, heh. I remember one of the toys I got from those.. it was a small rather colorful plastic boat. I had a wooden boat too which I liked.. I should still have it somewhere ahaha.
