Resident Evil

As I approach the dark, almost threatening, house
I feel the prescience of impending doom.
While I walk the silent pathway,
I notice that the previously lush lawn
Is black.
Roses wilt on their vines,
Hydrangeas sadly droop.
As I enter the dank hallway,
My bone marrow chills.
Blood, almost black with age,
Drips down the walls.
The silence is deafening.
With intense trepidation,
I open a creaking door.
my wife sits, stiff backed,
Almost frozen in time.
Through a thin smile
She says;
'My Mother's come to stay'
'For a few days'
'Isn't that nice? '

    Owain you scoundrel, you always make us laugh. Love your vivid imagination and amusing way of expressing your feelings about the dreaded visit from the in laws. Great poem.

    Im glad I'm not a mother-in-law, they certainly come in for some stick! ! Very amusing Owain, when I started reading, I thought what a dark poem. A fun write.

    A great write of humour and suspense. You have opened a Pandora's Box here my friend. Wel done.
