In Between

by Mandy   Sep 6, 2017


Here upon this shelf I sit
I've journeyed to a thousand places
So many pages still unwrit
I'm yearning to fill up these spaces

I've soared to heights above the ground
Witnessed things that stole my breath
I've gone so low I've kissed the ground
And longed for something more than death

My binding is so worn and cracked
My paper wearing thin
Though I've become an artifact
I have yet still more to spin

So welcome to my story
My penned insanity
Twisted allegory
Come explore my fantasies

Though my sheets are not eternal
We can forge a tale brand new
Insert your name here in my journal
Let's go, there's much to do!

For this novel is not finished
My conclusion not yet fixed
Though imperfect, undiminished
I still adventure here betwixt

    If you keep on filling the blank pages of novel with such good poems, I wish it takes some time for novel to complete.

    More than happy to see it in nomination list.
