First Line Friday – January 19th, 2018

Thanks Dylan.

Your line for this week is:

I found myself in the ruins again.
No matter which archway I went through,
I found myself in the ruins again.
I climbed the steps in search of you,
And found myself in the ruins again.
I backtracked, looked up at the sky,
To find myself in the ruins again.
The leaves beneath my feet turn dry
Leading into the ruins again.
Where am I about to be led
Returning to the ruins again,
This can’t be life, I must be dead,
These ruins are my only domain.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
