    Unread Book

    Pressed within the closed book,
    they writhe upon the page
    in unbreathing silence —
    forgotten characters —
    with their stories long buried
    in their own flat darkness.
    Between each line,
    throughout each neglected page,
    their ghosts wander among
    the skeletons of empty words
    mingling midst the smell of musty paper.
    They long for just a breath,
    a new beginining,
    so the bones of words may rise from the dust,
    put on flesh and live again.

    Lovely write Suzy - this puts me in mind of the phoenix rising only it's the Muse - and in the fleshy confounds of robust words!

    Lovely ending - I haven't heard the phrase "bones of words" before - this is novel concept indeed.
    Thanks for the share!

    Jacquii,

    Thanks for reading. :)

    I know I get some strange ideas in my head a lot of times. This was one of those times. Just trying to imagine what goes on when a book is closed... and my imagination went a bit wild. hehe

    I just tried to explain to you what I was thinking when I wrote about the "bones of words" and it was too strange for even me, so I deleted it. I think some things are better left unsaid.

    Perhaps... But I sure appreciate you sharing the inspiration. It adds a little bit of depth knowing from which spring such poignant mating of words like "bones of words" -- novel phrase = I like it :)

    I would rate this a ten on ten for its uniqueness, great write, I read it and I was thinking of it from the point of view of maybe a good book that no one reads anymore, If I could mention one here it would either be D.H Laurence's Lady Chatterley's Lover or Jane Eyre .. both great books with such intense characters yet sadly forgotten by the new breed of readers. Great write, Bravo!

    Thank you very much Jonathan for your very generous rating.
    I'm glad you found it likable. I have to admit I don't read the old classics, (I like the best sellers of now and also the likes of Dean Koontz) but yes, it is the older books that I was thinking about when I wrote this. Thanks for your comments.
