We are young

Her house becomes a Havisham, a destination long forgotten.
The clocks stop, the walls and windows grow grayer.
The plants in her window slouch from their negligent mother.
The machine archived voicemails into ancient history.
The friends she never called back, their pictures on the walls
like portraits of dead saints, they gaze in eternal judgment.
This purgatory her mind built that she lives in day after day.   
She will never leave it behind, because how can you escape
a prison others deem as fictitious.

Friday Night Poetry Corner #186

Welcome everyone to another Friday Night Poetry Corner. This week is my new poem I just wrote a few days ago. The title is “A walk down the afternoon dreary.” I hope you guys will enjoy it!

A walk down the afternoon dreary,

It contradicts the strength of us,

Manifest everything in beauty. It frames us into existing

Internalize the watcher for self importance while shaming their actions to oblivion

In truth I want to believe in solid nature.

I do,

With no hesitation

As far as my eyes will see.
