Andrea, on her blog, myspokenheart posted a post hmmm or are they blogs on your blog? today, Images of abandonment.
Some were of mental institutions, deteriorating over time. The sadness of the way we were treated then, is apparent in the images.
So I tried a poem. 🙂
This was one of the images, you can find the rest here. Abandoned…
the days linger in a haze filled fog
running together timelessly,
sounds are but echoes, perhaps only memories in time
peeling mortar, crumbling blocks, ceiling in tatters
sitting here quietly, lost in endless nothingness
the whispers fading quietly, the screams still yet so loud
time unchanging, shadows flicker, mortar crumbles
and another day fades, melding into uncertainty
twisted and tormented, but yet so normal for me
left alone, abandoned once again
no one cares, that I am twisted, bent unworthy
I shouldn’t be here, I am useless.
hopeless despair, a slouching reality
slumbering… or stuck in time?
and I am just a chair
