Forgotten Poetry

by Chris Sorrenti


forgotten poetry

on the back

of a Rolling Stones album

rarely listened to anymore

beneath a light

in a bedroom

and an airplane model

sitting dusty on a shelf


paint scattered

on a table nearby

by a child

helter-skelter

years ago

its oily fragrance

long since departed

with the haunting echoes

of

Time Is on My Side


others’ words

discovered haphazardly

on yellowing sheets

of foolscap

wishes of friends

deeply missed

now gone

their own way


their poetry

returns the ink

to pages of desire

lighting the darkness

that shines

from inside

I love the poem, Chris. The melancholy feeling of it which is achingly sad to reminisce.
