Old stair

Into darkness
Down they go
Creaky board
Damp stone
Cobwebs, crickets
Old mousie bones
All I fear
Is down those stairs:
The dried mummy leather
That once was a human heart,
Black jar conceals the bright
Shining soul.
An iron bound oak chest
The prison for success

  1. Lots of scary or nesting things down there. Always is when it’s DOWN. Most of the ones I have read went UP. This was a fun read, sort of like the storm cellars of the Midwest.
