Corridors

Empty corridors with empty walls, 

Devoid of colour, lacking emotion, 

Lonely corridors, no life within, 

Insects devouring the crumbling plaster

 

Walls that once had scenes of beauty, 

Now lost in the undergrowth of life, 

Locked doors now line the walls, 

Keys rusted and redundant. 

 

Ghosts of better days wander aimlessly, 

Trying to paint the past back to life, 

But the walls appear too far gone, 

After years of layer upon layer. 

 

Empty corridors with empty walls, 

Corridors that last forever, drawing you in

Never ending scenes of nothing, 

Ghosts of better days just out of reach.
