The Ghosts of Tomorrow

by Ashleigh Skye   Mar 7, 2006

Looking around this sullen room,
where the people like statues,
don't move.

Succumbing to the power,
and abandoning their smiles,

The twinkle in their eyes,
that has been long since dulled,
now lost.

Chained to the floor by hopes and dreams,
blanketed by sorrow,
silent screams.

All the expression in the room is lost,
damned by the turn of a key,
