A MIST

 

The mist follows me,

greedy fingers around my neck, 

stalking my footsteps.

It takes form

and whisks me away

to the tunnels below.

Smoke fills my lungs.

It travels down my throat,

filling me with darkness

and evil.

MY HAIKU OF DEATH

 

Sliding down below.

Where no one will dare to tread.

Down the dark hollow.

 

Darkness fills each side.

Gravity, my enemy.

No place left to hide.

 

I keep falling down.

Will I hit rock bottom hard?

I won’t land on down.

 

My descent goes fast.

I’ve come to my bitter end.

Life is in the past.

THE ABYSS

babblzoom:

 

Falling.

Deeper.

And deeper.

Into the abyss.

No lights.

No sounds.

Only hands.

Reach for me.

 

I can’t grab onto the walls.

They’re too slippery.

My fingers slide down.

Is there an end,

Or even a bottom?

Will I be falling forever?

Down, down I go.

Into the abyss.

No more worries.

No more thoughts.

Just the abyss.

IT’S BEGUN

 

tunnel

 

The staircase gives way.
Linda slides into its deadly grasp.
A tunnel envelopes her.
Hands reach out for her.

Will I reach the bottom?
Is there even a bottom to this madness?
Who lives beneath End House?
Will I become one of them?

Into the unyielding darkness 
Comes the cry, “Stop!”
Linda looks up to find Todd and Shana,
Clinging to the rocky walls.

The staircase reappears.
They climb to the front door.
Linda pulls on the handle.
It won’t budge.

“Open!” echoes in the hallway.
At Todd’s command,
The door opens for them.
The house pushes them out,
Slamming the door behind them.

Too terrified to glance back at Todd,
Linda races ahead to the car.
I can’t believe I was actually
Falling for him.

Linda’s problems have just begun.

THE DEAD GAME

A DOOR IN THE FOREST

A Door in the Forest

A DOOR IN THE FOREST

The house is gone.
All that’s left is ash
And the door.

The door to the dungeons.
Where The Dead lived
And died.

I can see dark shadows
In the distance.
Are they coming for us?

I thought they were all gone.
What happened to The Dead?
Are they gone or still lingering?

The earth is rumbling.
The door is shaking.
We’d better leave.

Right Now!

FALLING

The staircase gives way.

Linda slides into its grasp.

A tunnel envelopes her.

Hands reach out for her.

Her cries fill the dark void.

“Will I reach the bottom?

Is there even a bottom?”

Her jumbled thoughts swirl around.

She hears a voice yell out,

“Stop!”

The tunnel dissolves.

The stairs return.

Todd waits on the top step.

Linda runs down the staircase

And makes it to the front door.

But the door knob won’t budge.

“Open!”

The door opens

At Todd’s command.

The house pushes Linda

and her friends out the door.

It slams shut behind them.

Afraid to face a new and more powerful Todd,

Linda scrambles to her feet

and races away from End House.

Into the tunnel we are thrown.

Been more careful if I had known.

We’re falling down a dark abyss.

Please someone give us an assist.

 

We’re falling too hard and fast.

This nightmare better not last.

Our time has come to an end

As we fly around the bend.

 

The Dead are waiting for us below.

I can hear them yelling out hello.

We land with a thump and a bang.

I’m now facing a big fat fang.

OASIS IN HELL

Oh no.

Too late.

We shouldn’t have come.

To the party at End House.

It’s not a party for us.

But a deadly game.

A game to the death.

Revolving rooms.

Dead bodies.

Traps.

It’s too late for us.

But you must leave now.

THE DEAD GAME HAS BEGUN.

 

Hi!

We’re here for the party at End House.

No one seems to be home.

Should we stay?

We heard movement inside.

Sounds of laughter and music.

Maybe there is a party for us.

Let’s go in.

THE DEAD GAME IS HERE.

 

Welcome to End House.

The games are about to begin.

Watch out for the blood and bodies.

Everything is an illusion.

Or so they say.

THE DEAD GAME is about to begin.

 

 

I’m trapped in a nightmare.

Clowns are chasing me.

The knife-thrower swings at me.

Where should I run?

There’s a colorful tent.

This must be a carnival.

Oh no.

This tent is full of mirrors.

Reflecting distorted images of myself.

Someone just pushed me.

I’m falling through a mirror.

Down a dark tunnel.

I’ve landed in the basement of End House.

I can never escape this house.

THE DEAD GAME HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN.

 

Your heart is pounding.

Your pulse is racing.

The house is alive.

It’s breathing.

It’s moving.

Illusions are stalking you.

Creatures from within the walls.

How do you get out of here?

You can’t.

DOWN WE GO!

DEEP HOLE

buron:

Syd’s Opal Daydream v (11)

©buron – May ‘14

Come into my darkness.

My deepest depths.

Where dreams and nightmares flourish.

And light is held at bay.

Come in and be lost.

Lost in my utter despair.

Where loneliness and horror

are the rules of the day.
