“In the darkest corners of my closet”

AP Language and Composition Ode

In the darkest corners of my closet, an old shoe box resides

Once old and lifeless, but I saw your potential.


I cloaked you in True Black acrylic,

and sat impatiently waiting for the layers to dry

Stars, delicate and radiant green, I brushed upon your surface

An homage to those plastic constellations from my childhood nights, 

Pasted on the ceiling of my home now left behind.

I am Van Gogh, you are my starry night.


You, now protector of my most sacred memories,

A bearer of witness to echoed laughter and bittersweet tears,

you defy the thief that is father time, 

you restore my withering memories on those days

that I am reminded of your existence.


Oh memory box, who would I be without you? 

You are more than mere cardboard and paint, 

you’ve become a vessel that cradles the core of my being,

For my past, for my present, for my future,

You are the evidence of my existence.
