Nobody Left To Love Me

Someone always leaving
and never coming back.
The wooden houses left too long abandoned
to turn old and gray.

Weeds pushing apart......
Trees gone wild,
Fields taking over.
Shredded curtains blowing in the wind.

Beams of weathered wood......
No longer able to hold in
The soft heartbeat of Home.

I never understand this. They do look lonely, don't they? They need some TLC and to be brought back to life.

That is sad, would like to fix that up, how about you?

Tweedles -- that's me said...

oh this is a sad house! I know it wants to be loved again! I just know it

JO, Old houses kind of make me sad. I wonder, why...why didn't someone buy or sell this old house and let someone else love it. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Reminds me of my dad's old farmhouse after he died. It was eventually sold and replaced a fresh, new imitation. It's auro lives.

So sad - there was probably a family once, who loved it and children who played in the garden.

OK *sniff* I'm sad now ;-(

Winifred said...

I'd love a house like that. So sad to see it.

It always makes you think of all the stories that were created with the people who lived there. I wish they were not abandon and yet I enjoy seeing them.

My husband and I had a (bad) habit of falling in love with places that were needy. So we bought, fixed then enjoyed the sold and did it all over again.
It is very enjoyable, bringing an old sad house back to being a comfortable pretty home.
Now I just moved in to my first "condo" ... since my husband died and I left that house we bought in NY State, I am now in a modern new not fussy Condo in Floriday. A townhouse so the cats and I are enjoying the change ..
