SCARED TO DEATH

 

They come in the night.

Take all with their might.

A town scared to death.

From their deadly breath.

I watch the town fall.

Come one and come all.

A WARNING

 

“I told you not to go into the house,

that no good was going to come of it.

‘A surprise party,’ you said.

Did you find a host or guests?

No. You found a deserted house.

Some traps and bloody saws.

A fireplace with falling limbs.

Have you had enough?

Yes? I thought so.

Now find your way out.”

The black bird flew away

with a wide grin on its dark face.

THE RAVEN’S LAST CHANCE

nitratediva:

Bela Lugosi recites some Poe in The Raven (1935).

The raven sits quietly while Lugosi reads the lines.
It sits as still as a lifeless statue.
But what if it isn’t lifeless?
What if it’s just waiting?
Waiting for the actor
to stop droning on.
For the room to become quiet
so that he could pounce.
The way he was supposed to
in The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.
He must perform for his namesake.
The world could use one less actor.
Couldn’t it?
Swoosh…

EYES TO THE WIND

The raven waits.

Sitting on its perch.

Eagle eyes to the wind.

Who is he waiting for?

Will he know when he sees it?

Wait.

His wings are spreading out.

About to take flight.

He lets out a screech.

He’s looking…

He’s looking at me.

Time to go.
