A Simple Tribute

 

Gedesoned sentences cover my floor

They are the forgotten

The fallen

The heroes of war

 

 

They are the frozen leaves

The decaying disease

 

 

They are often overlooked...

 

 

Frozen In time

Forged like steel in rhyme 

Where embers once burned

They are soot

 

 

Battalions of syllables

Forgotten miracles

 

  

How they crunch underfoot...

 

 

Now reanimated 

In future time 

They are the monster 

Of Dr. Frankenstein 

 

 

Stitched up at the seams

From part memory

Part dream

 

 

A simple tribute 

To what might have been....

    I think we all have those words showing 'what might have been'.

      Indeed we do Goldfinch, not just in poems either. It's important to be content with what you have I think.
