The whole house echoed

With emptiness

Spectres of past lives

Crouched helpless

In cobwebby corners

Surrounded by

Aromas of damp

Tornados of dust

Stains of neglect

And rust

A narrow staircase

A leaking roof

Peeling paper

Were not enough

To put them off

Tenderly nurturing

A wreck into a home

Unloved house
