An old bed is not silent. It has stories to tell. Stories of laughter and tears. There are more.

This creaky bed, once
haven of laughter and tears
Now at peace with silence
The owners left ages ago
Brownish stains oozing mild stench
unwilling to ride on monsoon's tail
harbingers of rain, this morning breeze
is powerless
for the memories and old dreams lingers
an unreliable infinity
only the clucking lizard above
smiles and beckoning new stars,

It is true. An old bed holds so many memories. It is the bed that has seen tears, laughter, illness, love, joy, and being weary. If a bed could speak, it would tell thousands of stories. The older the bed, the more comfortable it seems.

This is just rife with imagery and energy. I think my cultural background keeps me from understanding it fully, though. I do not know what the "clucking lizard above, smil[ing]" means, but for all that, I like him there. Is he an omen, an archetype, or a folk lore? I'd really like to know.

I love "unreliable infinity" -- great word combination! --Seems like I'm always relying on infinity to complete my story. The line I always quote is this: "I'll sleep when I'm dead!" And I run around doing, doing, doing, and never getting anything done. "Infinity will take care of that while I'm sleeping"-- I'm always telling myself this. So that line speaks volumes to me.

Your creaky bed is a great subject to write about-- I love the stains of old dreams on the matress (great visuals!)

There are a couple of word conjugations that need adjusting. Double-check them, and sure-up the tenses.

Take care. --Charlie
