an old book speaks out

Madison McKnight

"Beauty Hidden in The Pages" Allison Kallemeyn

Nobody listens,

And it’s slowly tearing me apart.

I’m getting older.

With age, it just bottles up even more.

I’m filling these pages up quickly,

I just keep adding and adding but nobody picks me.

Soon enough, I’ll be taking up too much room,

And they’ll replace me.

Just like they did with the last one.

All because my words were too long,

And they couldn’t bear them.
