Across the Page (Poem 2019 – 6)

Across the Page

across the yellowed page
lie faded blurred lines
where shallow truth
sanitises memories
of a past long forgotten
hazy recollections
conflicting with lines on the page
the scribe’s version of history
by egocentric stories
staged half-truths
of fiction masquerading as facts
that remain written
across the page

Inspiration from a post about reading old diaries on A guy called bloke
