Weekly Writing Challenge: Emptiness

In this week’s Weekly Writing Challenge: 1,000 Words, I chose ’emptiness’.

I have decided upon a poem, bearing in mind that I was never very good at them.

 

This old place, I’d like to say;

Was a place to get away

A place to settle all my fears;

A place I went to for many years

This old hall with all its arches;

The trees with all their swaying branches

I can remember some happy times;

Like when I hear the tinny sound of wind chimes

But not all is well in this dark hall;

Misery consumes it, all in all

I want the way it used to be;

Before the day I died at sea

And now I’m stuck within the walls;

Of all these arched and lonely halls

No way to move, I cannot scream;

All is lost, so it would seem

I see no-one, and I hear no-one;

And there is no place to run

This old place, I’d like to say;

Was a place to run away
