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




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




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




telling a story

of so long ago

of someone unknown


More than words
