Paper Life

image

She said her world
was made of paper–
that it was carelessly ripped
and torn out of the book
she once held so dearly.
Now, this piece of paper,
etched with years
of milestones
and meaningless moments,
is crumpled up
and has been tossed away
without a followed thought.
She said her world
was made of paper–
that each memory
left a permanent scar
on something entirely
disposable.

  1. I liked your poem a lot but I love the association
    “permanent scar
    on something entirely
    disposable” !
    Awesome !
