I Was Their House, I Am Their Home

January 23, 2009
By
I was their house, I am their home.
Remove their footsteps, they are gone
They have left, I am alone.

Shelves all emptied, pipes frozen stone
Empty of thought, all curtains drawn
I was their house, I am their home.

Voices echo from my panes,
Now Silence creeps across the lawn.
They have left, I am alone.

Betrayed, static. Helpless, still.
Another sunset, another dawn
I was their house. I am their home.

Naked nails on nearby wall -
Growth charts singing unheard songs
They have left, I am alone.

I have no doubts, they won't be back.
They will forget before too long.
I was their house, I am their home
They have left, I am alone.
