Frozen In Time


I am
Scraps of paper 
Filled with unfinished notes 
And forgotten doodles

I am
Half cups of coffee
Cold and discarded
Over intense conversations

I am
Unflicked grey ash
Hanging precariously
From half smoked cigarette butts

I am
The lonely bookmark
Found between pages
Of books once read, loved

I am
That quiet moment 
Forever frozen in time
Preserved for a lifetime

  2. Wonderful blending of expressions with metaphors...the emotions that I agree with Lopa have given life in a strong poetic form and one of the richest ones indeed that I have come across too...brilliant sharing, madam....my regards
