The Creepy Old House

entry picture

In a creepy old house I found a creepy old doll.
I bent to pick it up and boy did I have a fall. I stood up had a lump
on my head, but otherwise aright looked out the window, day had
turned to night. I looked and looked but did not find the doll.
I turned to leave and there it was hanging by its neck
against the wall. Its creepy smile seemed to say,
"Come and play with me my friend. We can play forever
without any end." To get out of this house
I ran for the door. But there was no way out.
It was not there anymore. Through a window I
threw a heavy bust. The window smashed and
there was a ton of dust. I looked out the window
but there was no ground, we seemed to be floating in air.
I said, No, no this just isn't fair!" I felt a hand upon
my shoulder, I let out a scream.  I heard someone say,
"Wake up honey your having a dream." I opened my eyes
to see my husband’s concerned face. I breathed a sigh of relief; I was in
a safe place. My eyes grew heavy and as I was returning to sleep, I heard
my husband say, "Go back to sleep my friend, then you can play forever without any end."

A sinister little dream sequence that Alfred Hitchcock would have felt at home with. Dum-de-dum-dum-de-dum-de-dum...remember the music for his TV series? I posted a poem once about having a nightmare from which it wasn't possible to wake. Join the club of us weirdos! LOL.
