Broken Walls… #Poetry

By candlelight, she roamed

the corridors of Abbeville Court.

Searching each room

that holds a yesterday glow.

Memories deep in shadow,

sorrow scurries to darker corners.

Faded wallpaper whispers

of lost dreams, broken promises.

The mournful sound of crows

echoes through dark windows.

The last room remains locked

against memories too painful.

Through the keyhole, children’s toys can be seen,

abandoned by time.

With your ear to the wall, laughter remains

In the broken shell of Abbeville Court

Where Lady Margaret roams the corridors

Locked in memories embrace…
