Creaking floor of an Antique store,

one time was a home,

overlooking what is now old downtown.

Second level once a bedroom,

then apartment,

now this store.

Has a feeling of a strict father,

a young girl locked in this eerie room,

overlooking what is now old downtown.

Broken dolls,  unused fireplace,

torn wall paper,  wooden toy dishes.

Frightening portrait of a grandmother,

frightened mother and a stern husband.

Strangers walking now on creaky floor,

of an antique store.

Finger prints on window sill,

overlooking what is now old downtown.
