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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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
