Unfinished collections

Remember the night
When you fell into that pit
And I decided I was not strong enough to 
Save you

Cannot recall how you came out of it
Just walked away
How to forget 
So long as you remember

You taught me to finish one thing
Before starting another
Just walked away but
You crawled and got stuck
In my jar of unfinished collections

I watch you move inside that jar, sometimes,
High up on the shelf, beyond reach
Cannot really make out your face

I tossed you, effortlessly,
Not strong enough to save you
Not strong enough, still,
To toss you from my shelf
