the rusty red walls
looked upon the loving husband
and the woman who was not his wife

the rusty red walls
looked upon the family dinner
and the mothers’ seat that was empty

the rusty red walls
looked upon the child
reading his own bedtime story

the rusty red walls
looked upon the cat
who was now showing his bones

the rusty red walls
looked upon the overfilled
medicine cabinet

the rusty red walls
looked upon the bedroom
barren of the vanilla scent

Many interpret this poem about a mom who is no longer alive so the house is falling apart.
