At The Pawnshop


Dusty windows reflected fading dreams,
Of items treasured now lost in schemes
Of hopes long lost or freshly dashed,
Left in limbo as cheques were cashed.

Hi happy ne year, thanks for taking the time to read and comment. It is a subject that holds a lot of sadness Im sure when people get on hard times, I was trying to compact the general feeling in a few short lines to convey this.

I've worked in a pawn shop before, and this describes the aura of the environment very well. You'd be surprised at how many people pawn their most sentimental item.

You have described an average pawnshop quite well with only four lines.
