BRIGHT EYES

BRIGHT EYES

Bright eyes look out at me

from a jungle of trees.

Leaves rustle in the soft wind

or from some movement within.

I must get out of here.

I can not take this fear.

I am lost in the green see.

This isn’t where I want to be.

I left the party to open a closed door,

and here I am about to hit the floor.

I’m surrounded from each side.

There’s no place for me to hide.

A creepy plant is bowing to me.

It wants to take a bite out of me.

How did this party turn to hell?

I can now hear the dinner bell.

I’m sure it is ringing for me.

Dinner I will now come to be.

MAN-EATERS

Welcome to my house.
A greenhouse of snakes.
Overgrown greenery.
A bat cave.
And don’t forget.
My man-eating plants.
The Florida sun shines in.
Giving life to my friends.
And death to all who enter.
THE DEAD GAME

THE GREENHOUSE

 

 

A green house in Florida.

Greenery and wildlife to the brim.

Trees with life of their own.

Birds unseen but heard.

Limbs reaching.

Grabbing for the next visitor.

Snakes slithering in their cages.

Wings flapping in the next room.

Surprises in store.

And so much more.

Come and join us.

WELCOME TO MY GREENHOUSE

“Welcome to my greenhouse,”
Wolf steps back from the front door.
He leads his guests to his greenhouse.
A path meanders through the thick greenery.
Leaves rustle.
Chirping sounds fill the room. 
No animals or birds.
Only tall trees reaching the green-domed ceiling.
A wall of cages faces them.
Cages filled with snakes.
Long tongues reach for the unwelcome guests.
Wolf laughs at their discomfort.
Time to leave the strange house.
They race down the same path.
Trees lift their mighty trunks in pursuit.
The house shakes and rumbles.
Wolf bellows louder in laughter.
They run through the room of portraits.
Eyes follow their desperate escape.
From a house ready to
swallow them alive.
THE DEAD GAME HAS BEGUN.

KILL ME NOW
 
A walk through the greenhouse
on a sunny afternoon.
Darkness soon falls on the dense copse of trees,
covering us with its inky shadow.
Rustling sounds echo from within the foliage,
followed by sighs and moans.
The trees begin moving,
their leaves striking us in a quick tempo.
We’re surrounded.
Are the trees moving on their own?
The trees are coming alive!
Alive with The Dead.
Just kill me now.
 
THE DEAD GAME

OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN — THE DEAD GAME — PART 28

We take the Yellow Brick Road to Wolf’s house,
A winding country road through the dark forest.
Falling branches and angry leaves lead the way,
But all too soon we reach the front door.Wolf waits as still as a sentinel on duty,
No emotions crossing his marble features.
His welcoming words ring hollow,
Bouncing off the shadowy walls of the hallway.

A room of portraits awaits us next,
Darting eyes watching our every move.
A high-domed greenhouse yawns its welcome,
Its tall trees stretching their limbs up high.

A path zigzags through the dense foliage
To cages lined up against the back wall.
Wolf takes Linda’s arm to escort her
To the treasure that lies hidden behind.

Snakes slither and hiss in their metal confines,
Reaching through the holes for the unwanted guests.
Linda screams and backs away in horror
Into the safety of Todd’s waiting arms.

Shana stands mesmerized by a tall, tubular flower,
Its mouth straining open wide.
Wolf introduces her to his man-eating plant,
Which leans even closer to take a human bite.

“Are those alligators under the glass floor?”
At Linda’s feet reptiles swim in circles,
Bloody trails of food following in their wake.
Sounds of laughter erupt around them.

Time for them to leave this house of horrors.

THE DEAD GAME — DAY 99

THE DEAD GAME — DAY 99

     The next room they entered was small and dark. “This is a man made cave,” said Wolf.

     “What’s in this man made cave?” Shana was losing hold of her fake bravado. She was irritated at him and the game he was playing with them. And she couldn’t understand the hold he seemed to have over Linda. She, on the other hand, found him to be loud and overbearing.

     All of a sudden, black furry bats flew at them from all corners of the cave, flying low, aiming at their heads. Shana and Linda cried out in fear as they tried to protect their long hair from the low flying rodents.

     Wolf’s unhappy guests raced away from the bats and back through the greenhouse. Shana couldn’t believe her eyes: the tall trees were coming to life and reaching for them with their long branches. Their shuddering trunks were digging up their roots to join in the chase. A number of the trees were already standing closer to the path; some of them had moved forward on their own. The whole greenhouse was shaking. The earth rumbled as the trees lifted up their heavy roots. She grabbed Linda’s hand and they ran out of the greenhouse; she didn’t want to get trapped by the trees’ long limbs.

     In the art gallery, they sped past the somber faces and watching eyes. The once-serious faces in the portraits were now laughing at them. She felt like she was running through a fun house full of distorted images. As they ran out the front door, she heard Wolf bellowing in laughter behind them.

     “I had thought that you were friends with these people! How could you have let this happen?” Linda yelled at Todd. Now she distrusted his motives.

     “We were never friends, but just business acquaintances,” replied Todd. “I didn’t know that he was in any way associated with the company that owns End House.”

     “We must be honest with each other from now on if we’re going to find out what is really going on in town,” Linda said to Todd as they sped away from the house. She had always suspected that he hid secrets from her, but had never known the full extent of those secrets until now.

     “I have always been honest with you,” said Todd. He was beginning to look annoyed and even angry, so she dropped the whole subject. She couldn’t believe that she could have been fooled by him.
