1 Poem by Bobby Fox

For Sale

A house once so full of life, so alive
Is now a lonely graveyard made
Even lonelier by ghosts.
Ghost memories.
Ghost objects.
Ghost meanings.
Each day a reminder
that I’m nothing
but a ghost myself.
No longer full of life.
No longer alive.
Dead inside.
And dying outside.
And waiting for what can
Never return.
Deconstructing the foundation
of our lives,
brick by brick
frame by frame,
until nothing remains
but vacancy,
a vacancy once filled
with so much promise.
A promise now for sale.
