What Never Was (Poetry)

What Never Was
By Kira A. Moore 

Hallow halls echo with emptiness.
Memories and regrets
hang in the air,
dust from a past
best forgotten.

Faded black and white photos
strewn across the floors,
reminders of those
who have gone before,
to be lost forever.

Silence rings,
a discordant note,
where laughter once reigned.
The voices,
ghosts in the fading light.

Shadowed silhouettes
dancing to rhythms
of discontent;
what could be,
what should be,
what never was.

  1. Your voice is exceptionally femininely elegant in poetry and prose.
    Next time your therapist gives you a writing assignment/therapy tell her you want to do it in poetic or prosaic form…… a thought from someone who thinks and cares.
