Ceased Memory

mantel lace
drooped over
dull brass doors
covered with
finger smudges
hiding the
lonely logs left inside
an ignored fireplace
where a cat once slept
and lovers used to snuggle

the sunlight exposed
missed dust bunnies
windows that haven’t budged
covered with an intricate web

mocking the wind
scattering orange and red leaves
beneath low hanging gray clouds
boasting approaching changes

unlike the stagnant
reminders of a life

unable to move
