Throwback Friday – Forlorn – Eugenia

a flickering candle

seduced dancing shadows

that menace the moonlight

upon cracked-plaster walls,

a community of spidery abodes,

their silken threads glimmer

as the night moves.

this old house creaks,

its grand days succumbed

to the harshness of yesteryear.

faded photos silenced

bear witness to graying

shades of existence.

no matter the season,

I reminisce with sadness

and a heavy heart.

gone are the days

of hope we would

age the same

from here to there.

    • Thank you, Derrick. Back in the day when I owned my agency, Lloyds was a major player in our placement of risks. Our agency specialized in hard-to-place insurance coverages. We were known as an Excess and Surplus Lines agency and were licensed to work with Lloyds.
