Closed Chapters

Closed chapters beckon, to be read once more

Stoic words with abundant feelings look pallid

Instead, the background changed to dreary yellow

Folded edges turn inward to gain some insight

Missing the freshness of heydey dreams

Some of the memories do carry old aromas

Staying relevant between closed covers is tiring

Without any hope, caught between heart and mind

Lines recite frail feelings in a morose tone

Spine of the notebook tries to support flailing notes

Intimate details wishes to remain safe 

Pages fly one by one, flipped over by trembling fingers

Closed chapters still intrigue the heart©

  1. Amitav, despite my long absence in WordPress due to travelling, catching up with every of your sentences again touches and intrigues me, as what you described in this poem. Yearning to savour more, I always find your literal creation a pleasure to behold.
