Entry 318: Lullaby

Hush now dear little one

Sleep quite well

By the time you wake up

Momma will have you something swell

It’ll be delicious

Full of meat

All the nutrients

You’ll ever need

You’ll be eating it,

For the next several weeks

Maybe if you really behave

I can get one for you as a pet…

So sleep now my sweet

Get plenty of rest

You’ll be happy when you awake

I assure you of that…

Listen to the sound of the rain

As it falls down

Or the drops of blood

From those in the meat room

…As they silently pray for a way out…

If you listen real close

You’ll get quite the lullaby

The beautiful screaming

Of what will soon be on the dinner plate…

So know peace my little bundle of joy

Mommy will keep you safe

Dream of the death

You’ll one day create

The tears of those

Who will  beg you

To spare them

…At least one more day…

Meanwhile you’ll devour them,

Their families as well

Providing for your own little one

Who will be…

…Your world…

*Child falls asleep to the sound of distant screams*

Entry 317: Peresephone’s Chance

If you care to take a chance

Go down to Hotel Sin

Ask for Peresephone

She’s a witch

The gatekeeper of dreams

Or

…Your eternal torment…

Play a game

Meant for two

She’ll have the dice,

Understand the way it rolls

Depends on your life

It isn’t about good or bad

It is how you’re judged to have lived

The parameters of which

Change person to person…

If you manage to survive the game

Find your way to the end…

You can claim whatever you like

BUT

Lose & The Chamber will be

Where you spend the rest of your afterlife.

The Chamber is a place of souls

Stricken in darkness to no end

You don’t see what comes

You only hear the horrors

The songs of misery that know no end…

You see…

Down there…

You will come to find,

Torment & suffering to be your only friends!

So what is it you wish?

What is it you’d like?

An eternal life?

Riches beyond your wildest dreams?

Perhaps a way out of Black Winter?

…Or…

Some other secret thing?

If this is the case

Then head on down to Hotel Sin

Ask for Peresephone

Then the game will begin

The dice roll of your eternity

Perhaps you might win?

The name of the game you ask?

-Peresephone’s Chance-

 

 

Entry 316: The Music Box

There sits a box most profound

In a Museum

In the center of town

Such is its present resting place

Having arrived after many owners

Met their fates…

The simplest of gifts

Its beauty is grand

Hidden within the beauty

Lay ones end

For every soul that has owned this box

Has died shortly after listening to it

The sound is said

To be the most beautiful of tunes

One you’ll never forget

It is rumored to be a mix of the voices of the deceased

The souls trapped within the music box

Forced to sing eternally.

The box warping its tune to will the sound it wishes

An angelic harmony to some

Regardless of the sound that comes

It is considered to be most magnificent!

How do we know

You ask?

The journal of one of its owners long since passed

She speaks of the beauty she heard

Followed by the realization

The impending dread

She said it was:

The most beautiful sound

One that beckoned you to comfort

To the idea

That very soon

…You’d meet Death…

Another soul had written in a note just before his death:

I’ve heard the song of Angels

It speaks of my end

Yet,

It is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard

Or…

…Will ever hear again…

There is a number

That sits on the top

Of this most interesting music box

The number currently reads 1,000,002

The number is speculated to be

The number of souls

…Collected…

So, while you are free to visit its present resting place

To see the many fascinating things within

The box is kept behind a piece of glass

No one being allowed

To listen to the boxes music

…Again…

-The Music Box-

Entry 315: 11

A number

Such a simple thing

Nothing that could hold any sort of malice

Or a similar sort of thing

Well,

If these are your thoughts

YOU ARE QUITE WRONG!!!!

You see,

11 has always been a bad thing

An omen of bad tidings

A guarantee of a bad day

Often of the worst kinds of things!

It was on an 11th

I lost my car in a horrible wreck

You might say,

Well you lived

So it’s not all bad,

Right?

Wrong…

I also lost the love of my life

The poor soul,

Sitting at my side.

The seat belt meant to keep her in

Malfunctioned…

Through the windshield she went

Into the front end of the semi that hit us…

It was on an 11th

I lost the keys to my place

A “kind” soul finding them

Didn’t tell me they’d made a replacement set

Soon after robbing me blind

In the middle of the night!

It was on the 11th I lost my dear ole Mom

The cancer was gone

However,

They missed the tumor in her head

Idiot doctors knew nothing!

I played the lottery once

The only number I didn’t pick

My unlucky one

Which in turn…

Naturally was the one  I missed

Gifting a cool 500 million (after taxes) to a different soul

I wish I’d picked the number then

However,

I know,

I’d probably have been hit by a car

Lost the ticket

Having never won anyways.

Oh, I’m insane you say?!

I’m creating a self fulfilling prophecy I am?!

Well,

I’ll tell you this

Every time it’s 11 or the 11th in any way

God help me if it’s the 11th month

Or

Back in 2011

Where I had pretty shit luck…

Something bad always happens

It is a guarantee…

Call it what you want

I’m simply saying

It always happens to me!

If it were that way for you

Say,

As most people are afraid of,

It was 13…

Now come, come,

Many of you can’t truly say

You aren’t wary of the date

Especially on a Friday!

Here I am…rambling away

The 11th has come again

I talk to y-

*Slip*

*Choked breathing*

C-call…9-1-1

I’ve slipped….

…….

….

..

…And…

…Stabbed myself…

…On my dinner knife…

-11-

Entry 314: I Still Love You?

Time passes

On & on…

A souls life lived

Another begins

One dies

There’s always another to take their place

Such is the balance of things…

Are souls born evil?

Perhaps born good?

Does evil have a choice in what it becomes?

So many questions

No answers are for sure

If I had them…

Perhaps,

You’d not have become what you were?

Was it truth

That you’d be insane in the end?

Were you predestined

To kill all your victims?

I just want answers

I wish I had peace

I wish I hadn’t lost my daughter

Although

I also wish

*Cries*

She hadn’t killed so many!

Where did I go wrong?

I raised you right!

You had everything a kid could ask for

However,

We made sure to teach you to appreciate it.

You worked hard

Seeming, normal enough

So, when the news spoke on the beginning of the murders

I’d never imagined the monster they seeked

…Lived within the confines of my own home…

*Cries harder*

How could you do this my dear daughter?!

Why is it I love you

Despite the fact,

You clearly became a monster?!

How could I love someone

Who killed all those kids?

How could I love someone

That murdered

So many innocents?!

It isn’t just that you murdered these children

Long before their time

It’s…

That you murdered them in such horrible

DISGUSTING!

Downright SICKENING WAYS!

You toyed with them!

…Their bodies…

You did…

…Well…

…You did most unspeakable things…

When they found the tapes

I didn’t believe it myself

How is it,

YOU DID THIS?!

I can hear their screams at night!

The screams of the innocents

Whose lives were taken!

Why is it you became such a monster my dear?

How is it…

-I Still Love You?-

Entry 313: The Scream

A blood curdling scream

Is heard from just a few yards away

Curious,

The man investigates it

As he grows closer

There are the usual warning signs

A feeling of dread

The unseen gaze of an ever watchful eye

Still…

The man presses forward

Deeper still

He continues on

A low breathing

Soon follows

Stopping

Checking behind his back

The breathing fades

Only to continue

The very next step…

Picking up his pace

The steady breathing continues on

Faster yet

Still,

He can hear it…

Another scream rings out

Just out of sight

The man picks up his pace

Asking…

“Is everything alright?!”

No answer is given

All falls silent around him

Save for the sound

Of the breathing…

Looking around

He can’t place where it comes from

Still,

Another scream rings out!

Dropping into a sprint

He runs towards the sounds of pain

As he does

The breathing closes in…

Turning as he runs

He begins to see a shape

A woman in white

Her jaw missing!

Terrified!

The sight of the seemingly decaying,

Floating corpse

…Far too much…

He continues to run

Deeper into the woods embrace…

Another scream

Was it closer?

He isn’t sure

The figure behind him

Is still breathing

Except now

…It is beginning to reach out…

Faster he runs

His life feels dreadfully on the line

He regrets the decision

To check on the screaming!

Still,

As he runs

The breathing continues on

The woman’s floating corpse

Picking up speed

Behind him!

FASTER HE RUNS!

HIS HEARTBEAT GROWING EQUALLY FAST!

HE MUST OUTRUN THIS SPECTER!

Or else

Today

…Could be his last…

These are the thoughts

That run through his head

As he runs deeper within

The woods seemingly closing

Behind him…

The woman groans

Her reach grows more desperate still

The man picks up the pace

Until finally there is a scream just behind him!

The woman has faded

The breathing has stopped

Turning in front of him

He soon sees why!

The apparition from before

Is no longer there

The corpse however

Hangs

Stabbed, ripped open

Almost beyond identification purposes!

It is only now

The man sees the truth

The specter that gave chase

Was trying to warn the man

…To stay away…

……….

…….

….

..

A man’s screams rang out

Just out of earshot a woman is sure she heard

Perhaps she should see

If the man is alright?

-The Scream-
