pages turn

pages turn

they are the pages of old

dust flies as each one turns over

memories of the past

that we chose to never revisit


pages burn

the hottest blue flames

spitting sparks in all directions

the book so hot it falls to the floor

engulfing the world


a fiery ball of fire


pages are written

new memories spilling ink over blank pages

each word a product of the past

the old

the bad


both become products of the future


but both are ignored

our dust covered memories are seldom untouched

and the piles of ashes our memories create linger only by the bitter smell of stale smoke that refuses to leave


by exploring the pages that make up our lives

we can create even better memories
