That corner
It offered no shelter
No protection
From what you knew
Was soon to come

That corner
Listened to your tales
It never judged
It knew the secrets
That no one knew

That corner
You haven’t seen
In so very long
But still see in nightmares
Far too often

That corner
With its scratches
(Your scratches)
And it’s tear stained paint
(Your tears)

That corner
In that dark
And dusty room
How after a while
It felt like home
