An empty shell of a home

Perched directly by the tracks

The railroad house


Trains flew by everyday

No one ever saw the house

The house by the train tracks


No one saw the sunrise

Illuminate the sides of the house

Of the forgotten house


The sun cast creepy shadows,

Shadows that hid the front door

The house with the mysterious door


No one ever took notice

Of the house until it was gone

The forgotten house that vanished.
