I am bound
Pale gray cover
Sewn together, bringing me to be
an object
but still a ghost, a shadow
Until I am filled
Memories written inside me
scribbled, drawn
left to be thrown away,
burned or read
Again and again and again
My life determined by
symbols made
lines on leaflets of paper

Great personification!  I love your description of the empty notebook as a "ghost" and that you question its significance by refering to the words as symbols :)  Keep writing!
