Daily Prompt: Ancient

via Daily Prompt: Ancient



Lost, abandoned, derelict, old

Broken, quaking, rusty, cold

Repainted, repackaged and resold.


Rebellious spectres haunt the hall

They could tell you stories

But the writing’s on the wall

Condemning their past glories


Mould smiles from the ceiling

For it knows it will survive

To break down is to live again

Arise, decay and thrive.


One beginning, no end in sight

The testament has no conclusion.

So quick bright things come to confusion

When the sky paints day for night

And Time signals his intrusion.
