I have no idea why I wrote these words a long time ago. I found them in an old notebook. Very strange! 🙂

Bachelor actually garnering beautiful family land

Autumn – bad brain here

Don’t!

It’s broken curious

Dream downfall Viking

Putting the fireballs luminous

Revolution is now following you.

sharp knife that ghost borrowed

sharp is the wind blowing through my mind

cut to the quick – the hurting kind

sharp shards of snowflakes

hits my face – freezes my senses

sharp as teeth biting eye lenses

icy numbness running through

reminds me to never ever forget you

Hundreds of words – nay, thousands on pages

Words upon words all neat in their cages

Set them free – fill your mind

Read them all, you will find

Words carry you away

To all kinds of places

And when you are done

Close the book shaped cages

Know the words have the power

Of mysterious mages

***

That’s a poem I just made up about books … and words … and magic.

I have hundreds of books in which to get lost in reality or fantasy, whatever I’m in the mood for.

I hope you do, too.

This Old House

Standard
Urbex, Exploration, Urban, Abandoned

Image of inside old abandoned room – found on Pixabay

This Old House

Held together with duct tape and dust

This old house doesn’t mind the must

To wipe away the grime and the crust

Would destroy all the love, would just

Leave a hollow amongst the rust

Would betray the love and null the trust

So I won’t clean

If you know what I mean

As you open the screen

Begin to glean

There will be no sheen

Just duct tape and dust

And memories from long, long ago

Whip poor will keeps watch

Midnight passing – souls to catch

Everlasting trip
