The Haunted House




The house was haunted

With scenes of devastation

Littered with bodies

 

One by one they came

The lifeless zombies drifting

And drowning in the pool

 

What a price they paid

The impact of the carnage

Known only by us

 

Remote desolate

Illuminated at last

A storm needs to come

  3. There are those who cause mischief and unwitting impact on others.Such persons need to be told immediately before they cause any further damage! That's how I read this! Great write oldegg!

  4. Chilling and as someone else said, not a place I'd want to visit.

  10. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do..to survive and keep yourself safe..I am glad you gave it a whirl..certainly led you down a very good path

  11. Their "shee" stood
    draped in nothing
    but red
    life brightens
    this leached out
    seemingly lifeless wasteland
    so beautiful to see
    these words came to be
    I bet she wishes she thought
    ahead about
    a belt, or waistband...

  12. I feel like I need to be screaming, "DON'T GO INTO THE HOUSE!" like in those horror movies. Eerie, indeed. Well done.

  13. The storm always seems to have a need to come...but on its own timetable, not ours...which is sad, really...not to mention disturbing...
