THE CANDLES

Source: 

 

 

Candles climb up the stairs.

Sentries of the dark night.

A deserted house in the woods.

Peeling wallpaper and dirty floors.

We were invited to a party.

But there’s no host to greet us.

More candles line the hallway to the right.

Their lights flicker on the grey walls.

Empty rooms greet our hesitant steps.

An open door leads to the basement.

Thick darkness beckons from below.

I suggest we get out while we can.

Hey, guys!

Don’t leave me here by myself.

A PERFECT PARADISE

A PERFECT PARADISE

Drop your defenses.
Relax your mind and body.
Can you see the garden?
The steps leading up the path?
Climb the steps.
Feel the summer breeze.
Hear the happy chirping of the birds.
Smell the sweet fragrance of the flowers.
Move slowly.
Follow the mood.
The serene scenery.
Climb step by step.
The steps will soon lead you
to a green paradise.
Where hummingbirds flutter past.
Super tall flowers reach high to the sky.
Rabbits scurry between the berry bushes.
How perfect.
How peaceful.
A perfect paradise
for a summer day.

THE HOUSE

phoenix-in-ashes:

THE HOUSE

Enticing.
Dark.
Deserted.
Dusty.
Eerie.
So many words
to describe the house
and the winding staircase.
Afraid.
Alone.
Reluctant.
Uneasy.
Words to describe
how I feel inside
as I enter this house.
I will take it step by step.
One creaky step
followed by another.
Until I make it to the top.
What will I find there?
Creak, creak.
We will find out together.
Creak, creak.
Those weren’t my creaks.
I’m not alone in the house.
I’m leaving.
Bye.

A WALK DOWN THE ROAD

Let’s take a walk down the road.

A road that is bordered on 

both sides by flowers.

A cobblestone road

leading down to the water.

Beautiful houses encircle the

lush mountains around us.

Keep following the steps.

All your dreams will soon come true.
