The House (poem)

Updated on November 13, 2012

Each night the sounds of Joy would fill the air

From house whose warmth filled neighborhood with pride

So great a love was living there inside

That every satin dream would start from there


Though music’s laughter traveled far and wide

So sweet the sound it filled each heart with care

Each dance of love the neighbors gladly share

Each night’s delight the starry eyed applied


Yet all the while none knew who called house home

They searched but got no answer to their calls

They claimed access but nothing did they find


Amiss has set a riddle loose to roam

But there within the stillness of the walls

Where memories two lovers left behind

      Such a descriptive and haunting rendition that keeps the reading guessing.

      A ghostly romantic poem. I think there are houses that ghostly lovers really do call home.

      Could ghosts of lovers still reside

      within the home and walls inside

      could times so golden still presume

      to fill the air of every room

      these questions have no answers now

      but to all past love we sincerely bow.

      Great job, my friend!

      This is fantastic. It leaves you to wonder where the people are, ujnless they went somewhere where only they could be...
