Desolate

A Poem By LoriAnn // 7/8/2010

 

The library in summer:
Empty, echoing with ghostly
Footsteps of other, unseen
Readers

 

 

(Side note: if you guys can help me come up with a better name for this absurdly short poem, I'd apreciate it. LOL)

Comments

Hmm...sorry

 Hmm...sorry, I can't help you with the title..but it's a good poem!

Good poem.

Short and sweet. Makes me want to stalk the narrow alleys of a cool, quiet library.

I would name it

Story Cave. Because when it's cool, it's like a cave of stories.

The Unseen Reader

 The Unseen Reader might be a good title. It was a great poem! Short and mysterious--but completely true as well!

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Title

How about:  LoriAnn is very, very lonely at the library all by herself and misses her Daddy severely (and Mommy, too).

Ok, so it's not a title...and it's longer than the actual poem...but it's true and is the influence behind "desolate" thoughts!

Hey, short is good sometimes

Hey, short is good sometimes - nothing absurd about it!

And the poem itself was fantastic.  It really struck a cord with me for some reason.  You know, there could be an entire story out of that...

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

Hmmm...

I don't know, LoriAnn.  I think I disagree with Mary here.  You were right; it is absurd.  But, oh well, as long as you enjoyed writing it.
