NaPoWriMo 2020 – Day 13: Stolen Things

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt focuses on stealing, a challenge to write a non-apology for the things you’ve stolen. Here goes:

The dog-eared book with your name scratched
in its tired cover, the familiarity of
its worn pages like the scent of home,
a welcome. The picture, battered
by the sunlight until it begins to age
into a sepia blur, reviving memories
of a distant time. The song, your song,
repeated until its notes invoke the
memories of stolen times and places,
Lost but not forgotten.
