The doors closed,
The room became hushed,
Everything was ready.
Ripples disturbed the surface
Shadows swirled beneath.
The pool held a secret.
Whoever entered would never age.
Fed to The Beasts,
They never came out alive.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Being eaten is one way of never aging. Not the one I’d chose

  5. Dale says:

    Entering and never ageing… only to be fed to the beast. Is there a warning sign on the outside of the door? 😉

  6. granonine says:

    Well, that is indeed one way to avoid aging.

  7. Iain Kelly says:

    Quite the local swimming pool! The beasts will be well fed 🙂

  8. A scary story, Di. No wonder they never aged. Well written. —- Suzanne
