Ode to my blue- silver book

May 13, 2022

if my voice was enclosed
in something
i would say
it would be
in an old
blue-silver book
with its brown pages
stained with the
burden
of my pen
and my hand
tattooing words
when no one looked
twenty-five lines
on each page
giving bliss
to my eyes
as my rhymes
flow with ease
and that faint smell
of vanilla
that my nose
addictively hosts
as it watches
your chemical compounds
decompose
the many quiets nights
on my bed
as your sight
whispers thoughts;
inspirations
to my head
and the loud afternoons
in school when we'd
fall in line
and time would stop
when i touched
your spine
i remember the first time
i saw you
sitting clean and new
in my father's trunk
i knew
we'd be friends for long
and i'll write in you
each time
i'm blue
Three years have passed
since that day;
your pages are almost filled up
and i stare
at you
where you lie
with those brown pages
my thoughts
occupy.        
 
 
 


 

     
 

 
   
The chemicals used to make paper eventually break down (decompose) giving old books that musty vanilla smell.
