Clocks


I hate clocks, always have,
They're everywhere marking time as it passes.
Two arms and two halves,
Woe betide he who time's laws trespasses.

I hate clocks, always will,
Reminding me of how little time is left.
With its ticks and tocks so eerily shrill,
The transience of life I never forget.

One day when I was in the hillside,
Living life like time had stopped.
I saw a house and peered inside,
And the madness I saw can not be topped.

Clocks on every wall,
Clocks with bells and clocks with doors.
Clocks big and clocks small,
Clocks that made my weary eyes sore.

I realized time had not stood still,
The clocks made it eerily clear.
My hope and joy time sought to kill,
As it has done year to year.

I ran face first into a wall,
Hoping to conquer time and end my misery.
All went black as I began to fall,
At least there's no time in eternity.

Chamber of Wonders

The room lit up revealing 5 bodies. They each wake up and scream at each other for they all look the same. As if they were clones. Each one of them had separate memories very different from each other. Before they could speak, the light at the only window in the chamber turned on revealing a human figure. This scared them - or themselves. The figure stepped closer until his face was revealed. He was them. He looked exactly like them but was wearing a labcoat. Now they were really confused and terrified. At his side where a plethora of buttons all designed to cause as much pain and torture to its victims as possible. They suddenly realized there was no escape. He pushed different buttons, inflicting different kinds of pain to himselves. They begged for him to stop. His facial expression remained dead. They all fell down spewing phenomenal amounts of blood. Why they weren't already dead, they did not know. Their eyeballs forcefully plucked out and force fed to them. Their skins car…

Missing

Melissa was an only child. Her mother died when she was a just 2 years old in a gruesome amusement park accident. She now lives with her father who has refused to find another wife. Melissa loves her father like any normal girl would. But it was time for her to have another man in her life, and so she did. His name was Bob and she instantly fell for him. They started dating and her father approved of it too.

One day Melissa left from Bob’s house to go home. When she got home, her father surprisingly wasn’t there. She took it as he went somewhere to get something and she went to bed. She woke up and went to her father’s room and he still wasn’t there. Now she was worried. Melissa called Bob to tell him about this. He said her dad will return soon. She calmed down a little. She waited and waited for her father to come back. She couldn't stay in the house alone so she crashed at Bob’s house. It had been 2 weeks since he went missing and Melissa was very scared now. She left Bob’s hou…

Oedipus

Brandon was a very socially introverted person. The only friend he had was his mother. She was always there for him through thick and thin. He shared his deepest and weirdest secrets with her. Some weirder than usual. Brandon and his mom were so close that if she was younger, you'd have mistaken them for a couple. She knew her son wasn't mentally stable and wanted to help. His dad was aware of that.
Everytime Brandon saw his mom and dad together he seemed to smile and look happy. It appeared he was showing progress. He even befriended the mailman.
One morning, Brandon was eating breakfast - feeling better than usual. His mom noticed that and asked what happened, he said "today's a big day for me!". She didn't understand but felt happy for Brandon as he went off to school. His mom couldn't help but worry about Brandon. Then suddenly, she heard all the doors locking and gasoline being poured into the house. Brandon's dad wasn't around that day, she…
