If these wall could talk, they'd tell tales of silent sighs and muted tears,
Of a happy household; everything in place, a vital something amiss...

If these walls could talk, they'd describe diluted dreams gushing out of starry eyes
desires dancing on wistful eyelids...

If these walls could talk, they'd speak about burning ambitions
embers still flickering bright on the retina...

If these walls could talk, they'd narrate about acts of selfless devotion going
 unnoticed, unappreciated; of ears fervently aching for tender words of compassion...

If the walls could talk, they'd share the recipe; ingredients of dedication and care
lovingly used to prepare each un-eaten meal...

If the walls could talk, they'd spill out the whole truth
one that not a soul has an inkling about; of stony silence's endless pining...

If the walls had a heart, they'd reach out and hold in a warm embrace
to soothe away empty loneliness of cold dark nights...

    Wow- I can see why this is a winner. Oh, if walls could talk- what would all of our household walls have to say about us? I love this concept, and you crafted it quite elegantly. Wonderful write, as usual :)
