A Future Lost.

I walk now through this empty house
Casting shadows on the wall
These rooms once furnished full of love
hold no feelings left at all

These halls once filled with laughter
Now echo those of pain
My footsteps ringing in my ears
Remind me once again

This place a future full of joy
Is dark, both bleak and damp
Soot encrusted walls now streaked
Like blood before my lamp

The screams still ring without a sound
Through the chambers of my mind
To etch their tale of sorrow
On a fate now sealed and signed

This place in rot and ruin
Will never be re-built
The loss of life still painfull
And the memories still felt

A family in fire consumed
An absent father spared
To walk this earth in shrouds of guilt
A life lived in despair.

You've captured that essense of what it is like to lose everything to tragedy and have to go on. All the dreams and plans that will never be. Left me with a disturbed feeling but appreciative of what I have. jp
