Blank Paper in the Corner

By , Bradford, KY
In my room
In the corner
Lays a solitary piece of blank paper

It's white as snow
completely clean
and unmarked

A gentle breeze scatters the dust
That had made the paper its
resting place

Once a living thing
Now lifeless and without a pulse
No longer does it dance in the wind

I can just imagine
All the uses it holds
a paper airplane
a safe to hold my untold secrets
a note to share my thoughts
a frame to display my masterpiece
a window to show my ideas
or just a piece of paper to show my hard work

But I won't
I won't use it.

In my room
In the corner
lays a solitary piece of blank paper

...and it shall remain there until my story is complete

Wow, this is simple, yet amazing. I your structure and the repetitive words are an interesting touch.

simple, but very nice, though it should be "lies a solitary..." instead of lays
