Liquefied Petroleum

Liquefied Petroleum

A Poem by YanZeros

Old House (2/5)


Can't leave without checking

Fumes might leak without breaking

Longtime before the neighborhoods crying

Screaming for help! the fire is burning!

Wailing sounds here comes the rescuers

Dealing off dark smokes and red fires

Hose whose losses downed drowned on saving water

Treasured things and memories turns to ashes

Too young to understand the surrounding fear

Questioning why we had to evacuate?

Hearing warning siren seems so near

We need to move out safely from this tore down house!

Moving miles away from commotion and stress

Cometh to shelter to my Mother’s friends house

Failing to remember the looks of her face

But won’t forget her long dark hair and her warming grace

Now turmoil has finally receded

Leaving not knowing the temporary address

Wondering how her life could be?

I just learned recently, She died with incurable disease...

No matter how young we were back then

We’re grateful to take refuge in her home

Spending the time playing together with her two sons

Asking myself... Where are they now?

A frightening experience but you were all safe. Fires are dangerous most of the time.
It is sad when you hear about the death of people who had been close to you and then you lost touch with them.
Nicely expressed.
