SEND IN THE CLOWNS

Daniel Merriam

 

I open my eyes to strange creatures.

Why are they in my bedroom?

Their thrill laughter makes my skin crawl.

They wave knives at me.

I need to escape.

I can’t.

I’m tied to my bed.

They move closer.

I close my eyes.

Silence fills the room.

I slit my eyes open.

The room is now empty.

I glance at my chair in the corner.

A red balloon is tied to it.

Oh no.

BREATHING

 

Your heart is pounding.

Your pulse is racing.

The house is alive.

It’s breathing.

It’s moving.

Illusions stalk you.

How can you escape?

You can’t.

OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN
Linda lifts her face to the night sky.
The clouds part to reveal the moon,
A light reserved for night creatures.
Sand swirls around her

She runs to the boardwalk

OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN

Linda lifts her face to the night sky.

The clouds part to reveal the moon,

A light reserved for night creatures.

Sand swirls around her

as laughter floats in the wind.

She runs to the boardwalk

as footsteps echo behind her.

Will I make it home in time?

She races along the path.

A shadow detaches from between the palm trees.

She runs into a hard chest.

“What are you doing here alone?”

Todd asks.

She isn’t afraid of him.

Or is she?

THE NIGHTWALKER

 

1 PREY FOR THE DEAD hide.jpg

 

I walk quickly this night

from those who lurk from sight.

The wind gives a whistle, a sigh,

as the strands of my hair lift high.

The moon hides its face.

I quicken my pace.

Shadows surround me.

Footsteps behind me.

Hands circle my neck.

Is that a love peck?

He takes my blood.

I fall in a red flood.

Will I belong to him?

He watches with a grin.

I’ve become a nightwalker,

a present from my stalker.

BROKEN GLASS

 

They fly against the Town Hall.

Our shelter from the storm.

They’ve found us.

Windows break.

Glass rains upon us.

The end has come.

Too soon.
