TROUBLED WALLS~by Heather Burns


 

 

TROUBLED WALLS

Troubled walls
began to
yell

plaster from
the
ceiling fell

Crumbled walls
began to
cry

long after
the paint
was dry

These walls
trembled
and shook

no more
water in
the brook

in need
of paint
and repair

like running
a comb
through
their hair

These walls
weathered
storms

now looking
tattered and
worn

When your
walls begin
to shout

you’ll realise
what I’m
writing about.
