Walls shattered, roof falling apart Dark, desolate and dreary A haunted house with zero activity. Very lonely indeed! An unclaimed property The land acquired by the city I have seen the lonely house Bulldozed to its death! Where’s the soul’s house, I surmised I heard it loud and clear: Where I sat Trumpeting laughter and life Spewing boundless energy! A bench where the house once stood An epitaph reads: “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life”

    Really poignant i like the comparison between different housing artifices. Its interesting to personify things your normally wouldnt to see how they might speak!

    What a very sad story for this house, but hopefully so many good memories were created there! This is wonderfully written though and got me intrigued, Dalila! Thank you so much for apssing by my poem-- heehee swerte mo, hindi ka kinakagat ng lamok, daming lamok ngayon-- I'm sure you'll have wonderful times with your balikbayan on May-- ako rin medyo busy kaya pasulpot sulpot dito-- super yay for renewing your PM-- post a blog sometimes pls :D -- hugs and love :D

    wow, this is so interesting, and the epitaph on the bench too!! Yes where DO those sad souls go when a house is torn down?

    What a beautiful poem, Dalila. I am full of admiration for your work. Amazing picturization. Thanks, Dalila for your extremely kind comments on my poem The Unmarked Grave. The appreciative friends like you are the only asset I a pauper of love has. I am so grateful. -Mohammad
