The Album

A neighbor
Boy who
Cherished her,
Followed her as if a shadow
Gave her gifts
Homemade offerings
Ink stained poetry
Jewelry crafted from stones
Keepsakes in a box
Long ago secrets
Made sweeter as they aged
Not intended for prying eyes
Or curious minds
Precious only to her, a lover’s
Quest denied
Remain only in her dreams
Silent images
Taped into an album
Undying desire now fading
Vows never spoken
War killed their passion
Xtinguished the flame
Young hearts now beat only in a
Zone of sepia remembrance
