The Charred Page

A charred page ~

Some left over ashes
Of redemption
And some words
Scattered around
From cleaved promises ~

A few dusts of regrets,
And some cobwebbed,
Splintered paths that
You dread to tread ~

Some dog-eared memories,
Some dotted lines
On yellowed pages,
Some days, months
And fruitless years ~

Some breaths taken
And spent carelessly,
Lots of goodness
Received ungratefully
And more evaded
Shamelessly ~

Some ink poured
In frustration
And mopped up
In harried wrath ~

Oh – but it sticks,
Blots, spreads, grows ~
Takes a life of its own,
Catches fire, burns…
Here’s the charred page ~

The charred you…

    That’s an absolute surprise, Louis! And much unexpected for a poem penned in the classroom by a lazy student who didn’t want to listen to the boring lecture on nutrition. 🙂
    Thank you so much!
