Yellowed pages


Yellowed pages; Thin and frail.
Yellowed pages; Tell my tale.
Yellowed pages; Keep my secrets.
Hiding in plain sight
Behind these Yellowed pages,
So frail and thin
Nothing to lose. Nothing to win

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this on a little book that is in another one of my poems that has tinted pages and it just made me want to write that, no matter how unimportant the book itself is.

    Thanks for the feedback but that was actually intentional. I reservesed and ended it for a short and sweet poem about a book. Who in the world would want to read a paragraph about a tiny book I kept for only a year and a half? (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
