Submit a Free Verse Poem (no rhyme or pattern)
There is something about abandoned places that give us a sense of unease. Remnants of countless lives lay scattered and forgotten, leaving silent objects with secret memories. We can almost see them drifting among the ruins - the ghosts. Phantoms of those who haunted these sacred places, souls possessing unknown hopes and dreams. Who are those faceless specters? Where did they go? What happened here, what drove everyone away?
I give you three different places to ponder over: a mental asylum, a city, and an amusement park. What stories do they whisper to you, dear poet?
