Fading Ink

Fading Ink

A Poem by Phill Oz O'fee

Fading Ink




On the folios

Of my book of life

Upon

Thin pallid parchment pages

The once bold ink

Is now fading


The preface

Full of anticipations

Is chased

By contrasting chapters

Embracing

Both exploits and discontents


Encased within

My hardback covers

Lay many

Secret reflective memories

Each new day

Adding another episode


But these come

With mixed blessings

As more pages penned

Brings closer

The final conclusion

To my existence

That's what book are about, reflections on one's life, be it positive or negative; some chapters reflect sad pieces and others more happy pieces of your life...it's conflicting all the time, because we keep changing our way and thoughts about life. Even though there are mixed notions, the final conclusion is your individualism.
Best,
Betty

As we age, we all face our own mortality; yours just happens to be on paper...clever write.

We all have our own book of life. For some the volume may be slim. For others, packed full. For us poets, ours will record our writings and thoughts as we tread our journey through life. A ragbag of our experiences, some good, some not so good. Thank you Phil for the gift of your poetry. Happy new year my friend.

The idea of cursor...of penmanship....of actually writing on parchment...like Dickinson wrote her poems, all 1775 of them.
And yes, we write our way closer to the end with each word we put down on the paper.
