A passing thought

Someday I’ll fade.
Dust in dust.
Air in air.
Elements in elements.
And
Name in names.
Till then I’m busy scribbling,
On these walls.
To be read later.
Both,
With love and contempt.

  3. I also really liked this piece, Ruby. It's gentle cadence belies a dark undercurrent. Very interesting take on this weekend's prompt and one that makes the reader think (which is always a good thing!).
