Senses

See... Untouched boxes lay scattered across the hall.

Smell... The musty, damp sent hung in the air.

Touch... Spider webs tickled my arms as i brushed past the ancient mantle piece.

Tasted... I chocked on the taste of old dusty air that filled my mouth.

Heard... A sudden creak screeched threw the silent night as i stepped on a                           brittle floor board.
