A better reader than a writer - but aren't we all?
If I like your writing then I will spam read it (sorry about that)

FREE WRITING

5
Bookshelves are haphazard timelines
They run their course across our lives
They are personal
Even though we did not write them
We read and lived them
And that's something, isn't it?

The books batter their corners
As we age
To remind us
How many days have passed 
If you flick through the pages
Of a volume you haven't touched
For years 
Then the dust corrupts your lungs
Memories corrupt your lungs
As if they are stuffed full of
Tattered pages

Ink runs down your aorta
And into your limbs
You are a haphazard mashing
Of books and memories

They mix up together
Like blood and toothpaste
Swirling down your sink
They are lost down a black hole
They burn up in headaches

And at your grave
All the memories 
That you didn't share
That you kept to yourself
Will be consumed and burned up like pixie dust
And maybe they'll even make a big bonfire
To burn all your books

But whilst your still alive
Books are scattered
Haphazardly
Around your life
Like little pockets of grass and trees in suburban streets
Places you don't live
But are stained on your mind like credit card pin numbers, bitter pills or annoying adverts
