A short story rhyme
There’s a house on this street where the sun never shines, Its clouded in darkness, windows covered in vines.
Stories have been told since back in the day, Scary enough to keep any young child away.
The Adults laugh, gossip and talk, But not one of them dare to take that walk.
Beyond the pine tree’s through the door on the left, Where they fear they’ll meet a fate worse than death.
The truth lost in rumour and embellishments galore. But what is the story behind this eyesore.
A wicked old man cursed for his sins. lies in wait of fresh victims.
Disfigured by fire, or at birth its unknown. For his true face is never shown
Alone in the dark. a figure he calls ‘Come in, Come in’ from within those walls.
On the fullest of moon’s when the world falls silent is when he is heard to seek out the defiant.
So beware of this place. Run, move, make haste.
As none who have entered have ever escaped.
But that tale is untrue. just a rumour that grew.
And here is the truth uncovered for you.
There is someone in there behind those black blinds. Sitting alone biding their time.
His face uncovered and seen by all. The ones who trespass and get caught in death’s thrall.
He is small to the many but large to his prey who call to their brethren run away, run away.
He toy’s with emotions and tortures with fear for those in his trap the end is near.
Until a brave young soul. Fitting the saviour role. Enters the darkness off track from a stroll.
fearful sounds fill the air, a shuffle and a cry. Our poor lost soul feels something pass by.
Crunching underfoot of bones and slippery remains. Stomach contents empty as her courage wanes.
A voice unannounced starts to shout. Then at his newest victim.
He Leaps and pounced….
