Wall to wall

I walk into the room walls appear
Nothing less nothing more
I feel my heart crawl as the emptyness hits the floor
Once a home but now undone as the close of the door

The stillness surrounds my pounding heart distracts
Windows the vision of fullness outside within its crowds
Nobody sees my place of coldness that freezers
Deepness of ivory cream painted easel

The memories that have past make this a box now
The pictures inside my head like an old black and white film 
No ticket needed just an overwhelming knowlege of whats gone before 
For this is my empty apartment

    Such stark, cold and hard descriptions of the apartment, made me feel I was there. Wonderfully penned piece!

    Your apartment is void of physical accouterments, but not emotional trappings! Good colloquial lingo to allegorically describe your inner feelings. I invite you to peruse my Empty Nest poem! I use some of the same imagery to elicit similar feelings. Have a tawnie day!
