There You Stay

There
Among crumbling plaster
You stay
Unmoved
Unaware
Of the dangers that surround you

A
Crumbling soul
Destined
For destruction
Once realization
Of your demise settles in

    1. A lot of times they don't which can cause anger and pain. They are a ghost barely getting by. Thanks for stopping by!
