Shadows

woman

Shadows creep in

And

Give her confidence

Despite her nerves

 

She strides forward

Eyes fixed on the sandy coloured

Monster that has overlooked

The town since before she was born

 

The jagged edges

Of the remaining windows

Glint like teeth when the

Yellow gleam of the search lights hit

 

She swings one leg over

The stained ledge

Cringing as she brushes against

The ingrained grime marring the greyish white paint
