Derelict

Derelict, we stand
Bathed by our own shadows
Memorials to the past
Forgotten monoliths
Straight-backed, yet crooked
Gathered together
In gloom, we're presiding
We grey men
Mirroring real life

  1. I was trying to pick two lines I liked best and could not. THAT is a good sign. I loved this. I felt it spoke so keenly to the feeling of dereliction and emptiness. Excellent my talented friend. xo

      1. Bollocks! You are head and shoulders over me, and anyway who is comparing? I’d like to be able to walk as far as you. I’d like to live where you live. I’d like to inhabit your universe. Maybe I will one day. Meanwhile I shall let you rub off on me.
