Cold seeps in from the uncovered window pane.
Twisting through the exposed bones of those long forgotten souls
Nearby mice shiver with clear anticipation
Hoping that the chill will bring more for them to nibble on
A body saunters near, head of fire, eyes of coal
Trying in vain to stay warm
Looks into the window and overlooks the mice
Thinks that this is a safe place to stay the night
Enter through the doorway that was once nailed shut.
Takes a moment to do it due to it being frozen and locked
Mice scatter behind broken furniture wondering
Can’t it see the blood
