All over the world there are numerous abandoned buildings, ships, towns, gardens, and many other things. In your poem, consider including some these things: its former use or history, why it was abandoned, where it is, what it looks like now, if it’s rusty, and why it is beautiful. Other points to consider: has nature taken over; have vandals tagged it; why it might be important; is it someplace where others might see it; what is in/at the abandoned place? These are only suggestions. If you need inspiration – look up some sites that have abandoned places.
