Memories

An old white house

Sits on the corner:

Roof drooping,

Walls crumbling,

Windows shattering.

 

Some windows

are covered with 

moldy wood,

as if 

to try and protect

the people inside

from the world.

 

The grass

is dry and brown

and littered

with faded:

bikes

toys

clothes

balls.

 

The house creaks

and moans

as if remebering

the good days: 

filled with:

sun

children

laughter

fun..... and

life.

 

The house screams

and moans

and sloooooooowly 

slooooooooowly

breaks 

           d

                0

                     w

                            n

under the weight

of the happy

memories.

That's a cool way of writing. Using the words and the format of writing them to add to the emotional impact of the story is cool. Glad to see you're trying out that style. Keep it up!
