Sold

Written by: A. Sanders

Our eyes met, from across the road,
I felt you love me as I would you.
Inside me, you made me yours,
the emptiness filled with something new.
I brought you comfort, kept you safely,
while my world was lit by your hand.
You explored me, knew all my secrets,
every part of me you would understand.
Then you left me, without warning
letting cold and darkness in.
I met with strangers, who didn’t love me,
or adore me, as you once did.
Now a shambles, I’m barely standing
You took all I had to give.
Without you here I am nothing,
but the condemned house where you once lived.
