Small Town Sunday MAG

By Sarah I., Surrey BC, Canada

     Dark green grass
among tall oak trees.
My town is a lonely town,
the loneliest I have ever seen.
Dark houses,
thick dust,
and bushy, gray clouds.
Bullet holes in stop signs,
abandoned corner stores.
People walking all alone
in the middle of the day.
A spooky graveyard
covered in low fog.
The church bell rings
but only a select few can hear it.
My town is a lonely town,
the loneliest town I have ever seen.

“Gods of Olympus.” Piper stared at Leo. “What happened to you?”
His hair was greased back. He had welding goggles on his forehead, a lipstick mark on his cheek, tattoos all over his arms, and a T-shirt that read HOT STUFF, BAD BOY, and TEAM LEO.
“Long story,” he said.”

Wow I felt the lonely emotion just as you described. Amazing use of words.

You have great imagery; I actually feel as if I'm in this lonely town, watching all the lonely faces. Keep writing!
