Chalk Fingers

The first room on Imogens floor is that of Chalk Fingers.  You can click the image if you wish to see it larger.

Chalk Fingers sat
for hours engrossed
his fingertips tracing
things he longed for most

He would stay with each
but for a day
then at night
wash them away

so they'd not fasten
to his heart
because so many things
do depart

and all his lies
were really dreams
come apart
at the seams
