R.I.P LITTLE EDEN

Dusty splintered skeletal remains lie above the ground
leaving in view a consumed carcass.
A lifeless structure left behind forgotten by many
of it's former distant past dwellers.
Decaying boardwalks...
Carnival music silenced...
The pier lights burned out...
Fate cast out it's downfall on this historic site.
Angels have lost their desire for this Seaside Ghost Town
Trying To Rise Again...
Haunting nostalgic memories:
Eye's closed I can remember the
sounds,the warm breeze carrying the smells
from the once living boardwalk.
The Fortune Teller Madame Marie
The Bikers, Hookers, Hippies &
Greasers who would get busted for trying
to sleep on the beach all night.
Unless you where there in that prospering time
you would not know what a great loss we all have faced.
