timed out

I paper walls
hiding hideous marks
left over from a time we lost
I like crinkled finish
bubbles formed under paper

do we ever find time,
why we say we lost it?

time present and time past, are both perhaps present in time future and time future in time past....unending conundrum.

Thanks for a fun prompt and your interesting poem.

Wall paper was a marvelous invention. Mrs. Jim and I do wall papering together.
Neither of us could do it alone. She doesn't have the technical skills and I can never get the pattern matched.

Thank you for the the fun prompt.

Crinkly paper indeeds hides hideous marks, both literally and figuratively.

I love the metaphor of covering over a bad time with paper. As if by hiding the evidence, we can erase it. A very thoughtful reply to the prompt.

Good thinking, and very well said.
I knew there was a reason why I love wallpaper so much.
