Gone by R D Burton

Abandoned and decaying houses can be found throughout rural America. The rooms are empty with no signs of human life. The people who lived and slept and dreamed within the walls are gone and forgotten, along with their worries, troubles, happiness, and hopes. The house is all that is left. Silence alone remains.
