Frail house

 

Far away, this land seems so serene, yet so obsolete

As I went closer, the reality appeared

 

A

Total

Chaos

 

The house looked so solid and pure

Despite those missing ornaments that gives all the charm

 

The garden seemed wild

The truck toy had no more wheels

The swing was broken

 

I made my way through the door

Took a step in

 

No harmony

From top

To bottom

 

The living room was full

Of broken mirrors

Each a reflection

Of a hidden story

 

The bathroom was flooded

The

       Tap

               Could

                          Not

                                 Stop

                                          P

                                          O

                                           U

                                           R

                                            I

                                           N

                                           G

                                    

 

 

Those sharp knives, in the kitchen, were

H       a      m     m       e     r    e      d           e     v      e      r      y         w        h        e      r      e

 

 

                                         

The

Kid’s bed was

                                                        Messy                 The

                                                  Curtains                        Were

                                               Ripped off                            Toys

                                                  Strewed on                      The

                                                        Floor                      Many

                                                            Dolls                 Had

                                                               No eyes or no

                                                                     Clothes

Except

For

This

Doll on

The top

Shelve

 

 

One

 

Room seemed sinless

 

Everything at their place

The bed was made

The open window                                                                             letting fresh air in

Some photos were on the wall

People laughing and smiling

 

The room was ready

As if it was waiting for someone to come

 

Change the feeling

Turn on the lights

Put colours on those dull walls

 

 

 

Bring it back to life
