When the lines fade at the end of the page,
There's a loss in the structure of letters they cage.
Some words run free and retreat from me,
Tree roots can move streets, potentially.

When the lines fade at the end of the page,
This life plays out on a great big stage.
Make time, take mine, give love, have pain,
No need for reasons or attempts to explain.

When the lines fade at the end of the page,
Someone is making up time for lost wages.
Fragile like paper has been left in the rain,
Void of emotion, no room to complain,

When the lines fade at the end of the page,
My room is dull like a color called beige.
As a flickering light won't help you see,
It's fading out along with these…

What it's About
I took a Lit. Poetry & Song course a couple of years ago, for which I had this green spiral bound notebook, I used to write threads, poems, ideas, and other assorted doodles. One day I left my book bag in the back of my truck and it happened to rain. Everything got wet, including the notebook, where the lines had faded away about halfway up ever page. I wrote this poem on one of the few blank remaining pages to fit in my discovery. Of course, it also has a deeper underlying meaning than just wet pages, but that's for you to read.

Still the one
I've always liked this one. So seemingly simplistic. Reminds me of the poetry readings I used to do at good old CHS.
