an abandoned poem


an abandoned poem  (  a  p o e m  )

an abandoned poem

no poetry stirs

just letter impressions

where once there were words

perhaps it was madness?

perhaps they're all dead

or fire breathing gypsies

& that's why they fled?

an abandoned poem

no owls here or ghosts

or overgrown ivy

on pillars nor posts

perhaps it was sadness

or wolves prowled along

then feasted all meaning

oh, what here went wrong?

an abandoned poem

with i on my own

the dust here is quiet

i want to go home

so hurry now hurry

leave this place untold

& when you reach safety

then tell not a soul
