Ghosts of Dead Birds

A shadowy figure, hidden behind the doorIt was cold and stormy and windy quiteA candle at the back whisperedAnd the light that flickered came to a haltFootsteps echoed with creaking noiseLike déjà vu, the darkness consumed As it drew near, they kept a tight scoreNot one but two ravens, kept their sightSomething peculiar about this...

Is there anyone out there?

Scattering through the never-ending floating junkyard of ruins Like scanning for a nugget on a deserted island after a tsunami Looking for our neighbours in this Milky Way Like searching for someone familiar you know at a party Asteroids take different shapes and trail off Blazing hot like oranges over a tandoor in a dark...
