poetry

scroll (a poem)

dead sea scrolls,
instagram posts
of time gone cold
and human ghosts

a world away
in space up above,
i wish i’d stray,
a cosmic dove

to bring myself
from the black screen,
to the bookshelf
of my dark dreams.

within pages
of ice and gold,
my heart cages
thoughts of long ago.

memories from
all those silly notes,
small paper crumbs
with swift past quotes.

messenger gods,
listen with glee:
despite the odds,
i think i have
lost track,
lost track
of me.
