Left Alone

In by noa silverLeave a Comment

This piece was inspired by the vacancy in Schiedam and the movement from the citizens towards Rotterdam – Schiedam’s big neighbouring city. It was created for the Locations in Transition project at the WdKA.

 

No faces to fill the empty spaces 

that remain in these streets of hollow structure; 

built of bone, but no marrow.

I see, open structures being closed

like missed opportunities and lost hope.

In cities that can’t stop to grow;

Concrete sprouting everywhere, mountains turning into stairs,

and the weight that it brings makes us want to sink;

Into the hollow structures where the marrow left the bone.

In the end, it’s a house, left alone.
