All That Remains

All That Remains short poem

Outside, always looking in,
A deafening silence encompasses the room.
Inside, never turning around,
Embellished laughter and empty smiles fortify a line of demarcation.


The soot amasses dusty clouds,
Engulfing the couches and various chairs.
Never to be used, forgotten and discarded.
Compromising the shadows of the room, a door appears.


Walking frantically, naïve and oblivious.
Stumbling and tripping, blinded and confused.
Mishandled and abused, sorrowful and betrayed.
Unmistakable revelations, outraged and broken.


A familiar place with a familiar greeting.
The door opens, allowing a somber outline of light through.
The door shuts, forming the ubiquitous umbra of darkness.
Cast away with woeful abandon, I wait.

All that remains.
