The delivery was supposed to be done within a week,
but every call, every knock on the door resulted in more grief.
The packages never came,
so the ones waiting started to wither away.
First came sadness, then anger, frustration and finally hopelessness.
And then they realised that the love that they had ordered for was never coming their way.
Stuck on the other side of town
were the packages, over which the tears had been shed in abundance.
Jammed in a place where they didn’t know they would land,
they were doing their best to get to the hearts that were waiting and
others that had given up on them all along.
