I am deserted like a broken house
left by owners now distressed
by angles and curvature not quite right
and colder shallows in the rooms
where gathers dust, memories and gloom
I am deserted

I am unloved like an abandoned home
where shadows play with light as friends
Above it all bleak memories suspend
and re-write a history that no-one reads
Within we bleed
and live unloved

I am a shattered light like a broken window
in a room no-one will visit
where once afternoon teas may have warmed
in softer, more forgiving times
Across the room an old clock chimes
its harbinger of doom
And I am shattered
I am shattered far too soon
