Finalist in the 'National Treasures 2022' competition

Dirty heart stained, dipped in ink.
Coated in thick black. Dripping, its dragged
Across the board, dry and wordless—
Scratching and streaking,
Past marks assaulting the plain.
Distinguishingly camouflaged amongst the
Black nothingness of the
White board’s neglect. Hardly erasable
It seeps, ink etching its was into permanence.
Unobscured, unwiped yet
Unread. The white board darkens
Students memorise lineless sheets.
Discarded on the floor, a drowned pen eyes its labour;
A forgotten memoir.
