fiction and other writing

Abandoned

The floor board creaked
but no-one was there.
I heard a foot step
on the winding stair.

The fierce wind whistled
through the broken pane,
and a tree branch tapped
on the weather vane.

He said he’d meet me,
but I stood alone.
A spirit loomed.
Blank eyes met my own.

Why were we meeting
in a lonely place?
I saw a shadow
of a twisted face.

I ran to exit
through the open door,
aware my one love
wanted me no more.
