Apologies for my long – slightly unexpected – hiatus, been a busy time for me but I’m (hopefully) back up and running with this little number. Enjoy!
The Library of You and I
We hold up our dreams on bookshelves
some for you and some for me, aligned
just well enough to keep the surmounting pile
of wishes standing upright,
pages to the wall;
dog-eared and sticky-noted lines –
a memorial to things soon forgotten.
We live our lives in chapters:
though we may remove our bookmarks from the folds,
trace creased corners or broken bindings,
there are more pages to be written
and more books to be made…
