Room 1- The carpet floor is so grey it matches the cigarette smoke. The white curtains are turning into a pale yellow.


Room 2- This is the hallway you raised your middle finger to my dad. He shoved you out of his way and walked out the door.


Room 3- There is a purple picture hanging on the wall. Very few people know that picture is covering evidence that dad use to punch things.


Room 4- I slept in here with you until you made me sleep in my own bed so other men could lay beside you. I wasn't ready to sleep by myself yet.


Room 5- The Barbie house is set up in here, and I use to always wish that there was some magical way I could live in it. I eventually realize that I did. Everything about the house I live in is plastic, and it would never be home.

Thank you so much for commenting on my work! Apologies for replying back so late. I will do my best to answer your question, but I also have a question for you. What does "home" actually mean? Comfort? Because if home is comfort than I feel more comfortable around some people than I actually do in my own house. I hope I answered your question. Thank you, again for replying.

Interesting! Love your use of diction and imagery to get your point across. I'm curious if this is a real situation in your life - seeing your home as a person? Regardless, good job!
