Poetry

Treasures and Trash

I wrote this for a 100 Word Prompt over at Thin Spiral Notebook a month ago or more and never got it posted. So, I decided I would share it anyway. Can you guess what the prompt word was?

 

Words on a page

staring back at me

so much more

than letters and paper

Dreams being dreamt

Goals being set

Hope

Love

Life

all that is good

and bright

about living

 

Words on a page

haunting my sleep

crawling across

pages stained with tears

Dreams that were crushed

Goals not met

Fear

Pain

Loss

all the emptiness

and darkness

from what life gives

 

Words on a page

yellowed and frail

faded in

stained by time

A myriad of dreams

Goals innocent and wise

Life

Fate

History

telling a story

of so long ago

of someone unknown

 

More than words
