WHEN DOVE CRIES

written by: Leanne Neill

@LeanneNeill2

 

This house,
always so cold
stark, white
in the latest
Home Beautiful
way

The tin called it
Dove…

Fireplace hints
of warmth,
cosy nooks
suggest comfort,
framed faces
hang by jovial
smiles

S t i l l
it echoes…

Lonely hearts
splinter,
piercing in regret
blood lines
failing
their path
home

Next time,
Olive…
