I Lay Here

20 Jul


I lay here
Amongst the rubble
This place
Should I call it home?
By those who once loved it
In a maze of turmoil
As I lay here
I notice I’m not alone
They scurry
But avoid my stench
They escape
Through swollen plaster
It rained
My home is soaked throughout
I think
Yet nothing comes to me
I’m abandoned
