Like many buildings remaining with the scars of war
Like a witness of a time supposedly forgotten
Like old grudges said to be buried
Like wounds ideally healed
Unlike any office or apartment block
An abandoned building used as a vantage point during civil war, reveals traces of the souls that long ago used to make it “live”, and the more recent lost ones who’s skeletons still haunt the place…
Everything : from the furniture, ramparts, bullet impacts, to the decay remains… untouched.
A stifling journey whose only outcome is the way out.
