New Dawn

12/27/2009

The sun is setting on the last day
a wrecking crew will raze failing memories
first footsteps and tip-toed late night trists
will be wiped from water damaged wood floors
holiday dinners metabolized long ago
the windows were boarded up and broken into
idle teenagers seeking adventure and notoriety
not caring about the history held in the old home’s breath
decorating with colors long absent in this shell
light from paneless window frames passes
illuminating the spirits of forgotten souls
as dusk sets in like water over the Titanic
an era fades into the night to be no more
clearing the way for the future on a clean slate
