The House On The Hill

Lawrence_original_3-1by Lawrence Estrey23 Dec 2019

The old house stands at the top of a hill
Alone and abandoned
Surrounded by grass and earth

Weeds sprout across an uneven path
The faded curtains and peeling paint hint of secrets
An unproven rumour from the past
Silent weeping

The house has remained empty for years
People don’t want to come here
Apart from drunken kids for weekend dares
Or the morbid drawn to tragedy
