A Thousand Stories

A Thousand Stories

A thousand stories I have seen,
mostly on the silver screen.
Some I've read in paper books,
all the words, the verbal hooks.

A line, a phrase, a thought, a meaning,
ideas send senses careening.
Each, a memory of the ages,
frame by frame or turning pages

Each story, future, present, past,
realms of living, lives recast.
Characters alive and breathing,
full of tears, heavy chests set heaving.

Hearts full of pleasure, full of pain,
human emotions, love’s lost gain.
Heroes, villains, tell life’s tale,
Pull the curtain, beyond the pale.
