unfinished spaces

unfinished spaces

boxes of memories, incomplete thoughts, unfinished sentences
portals into past lives, untended flames, outdated fashion
 
things I cannot bear to part with and I dare not open
echoes muted by cardboard and plastic bindings, displacing air
 
ill-used portion of my personal space, and yet
if I stare, they turn ashen, silhouetted forest fading in fog

  1. Caught in limbo, they seem to be. You too, with them, maybe? Ah well, we all do this in some area of our lives, i think. Thanks for being part of the Flash 55!

  2. I love sentiment of not daring to look into those memories.

  3. Love the list of things in the first couplet, and then the final line of forest in fog - beautiful transition

  4. I can relate to your word specially the first 4 lines ~ I tell you I have so many unfinished and incomplete posts in my draft folder ~
