Words On Paper

I am nothing but words on a page
Nothing but a story.
I am nothing but ink on a hand
Nothing but a memo.

Something you should remember,
that you always forget.

I am the pages piled on a desk,
Waiting to be read.
I am the essays stacked in a file
Waiting to be marked.

Something you should remember,
that you always forget.

I am the author you cannot see,
Writing to heart's content.
I am the writer hidden away,
Writing the world around.

Something you should remember,
that you always forget.

I am a notebook, a pen, a page.
I am a computer, a document.
I am a bookshelf, full of tales.
I am a dictionary, full of words.

Something you should remember,
that you always forget.

I am a headband, a clip, a hair.
I am jeans, a sweater.
I am the gypsy skirt you'd never wear.
I am the ghost of the past.

Something you should remember,
that you always forget.

The End
