Clean Slate Shuffle

I found a poem that I wrote… probably within the past three years… definitely at least a year and a half ago, if not more. No date on the page, but I’m guessing by how small my writing was that I was at my writing-very-small stage =) Haha.

picture this –
five green leaves
smooth
finely veined
unblemished
bound together like a journal
with shiny wire rings
written over with tales
tales of calm summer breezes
sunlight sparkling like stars on the silvery blue lake
grasses taller than yourself
waving in the wind
the takes the grasshoppers and cicadas sing
but the sixth leaf
is rough
the edges curling inwards
obscuring what might otherwise be read
beginning to brown and yellow
and crack along the veins
and when the sharp
silver
tip of the fountain pen
loaded with blood red
touches the dried page
now drained of the water
its life
the hand with the pen
will tremble
trying to write so gently
over letters once so clear
and the pen slips
and the weak black ink
will bleed slowly from teh page
ink once more
and memories erased.
the fingers caress
the dry, dead, sharp edges
the ink mingles
with tears
and blood
ink that once told anger
pain
sorrow
but also happiness
now little more than a steady
drip
drip
drip

Hm. So just for fun, new shuffle =) No past-related comments… I’m ready to learn some new stories.
