Poem a day challenge #292 (The Tower)

The Tower

By Scott Bailey © 2014

The tower in the wood
Lonely and silent
Seat of many dreams
Where it was a palace of power
A refuge for outlaws
A romantic spire or a foreboding spear
A collapsed heart
Once vigilant
Now silent

Inspired by WeDrinkInspiration. OK so the place is still there but it sprung to mind instantly.

Get the previous ones here  and get my début novel Mankind Limited

  1. I loved the ending, it gives and paints a sad picture and an outcome of what is going to happen to the tower. It is like no matter how epic a building is,no matter how much love engraved to each stone – it is merely at mercy of Time.
