Shadow Play

I went to see you
But there was only dust
The floorboards sagged
A haven for splinters
Large spider web in the the corner
Even the insects were away
The sun shone brightly through the broken window
Casting strange shadows
An uneven life had been lived here
Given up for a passing chance at honest riches
No one was so forlorn as the invader
Of a space with no meaning
Left for the ghosts
Who didn’t much care either
I didn’t linger long
(For nothing)
Towards the hills where it was cool
And the green echoed
Casting a last look back
I saw the spaces of lives looking for bustle
Caring not for the past
Just as well
