Past Reflection

Light streams through the window
Dust particles drift around the room
Unveiling a world unseen for many years
Belongings strewn throughout the building

On the window sill, a tea cup sits
Abandoned in a hastened escape
Paint faded, porcelain chipped

A memento of a family
A ghost covered in cobwebs
A hint of the forgotten
A lonely reflection of the past

Soon, the space will be reclaimed
As the wild slowly creeps in
To purge the transgressions of it’s former inhabitants
