Ghost Town

Ghost Town

1 min 322 1 min 322

Was it a ghost town

I had walked into?

Not a soul to be seen around

in the fields strewn 

with skeletal remains 

of humans and animals


I knocked on doors

peered through peepholes

only darkness met the eye

A shiver ran up my spine

where had I reached in

my search for nirvana 


This place was certainly

where the tragedy had struck

without warning, suddenly

leaving an emptiness 

unexplainable behind


Perhaps an epidemic

of huge proportions 

had wiped the population

clean from the face of the earth.

Now in my loneliness 

have learned to survive.
