We are not forever,
We are only today,
And graffiti-stained bathroom stalls,
And words etched into park benches,
Weary and chipped from an eternity of long forgotten fingerprints,
Tell our stories as unbiased as our bones,
And the dust from our old whispers.

I think this is more than pretty good. This poem is awesome.

I don't know if this is intended, but the shortness and to-the-point of it all made me think about it more. You used descriptive words but almost....left me hanging. Not in a bad way, but the poem left me to fill in the blanks with my imagination.

It made me think. I like this.
