The Chase

Poem By Erin Dawn Deneys

Lets play a game of cat and mouse.
With you the clever mouse.
And I the stealthy cat.
Your quick moves will make me hungry.
As I chase you in a hurry.
Round and round the room we'll go.
Until we tumble in a ball.
With sharp but delicate claws.
I'll pin you to the floor.
A grin upon my face.
As I make your heart race.
I'll watch you squirm with greedy eyes.
As you try to escape with your life.
Then to my dismay.
You'll open your mouth.
Letting out a shrill loud cry.
In will waltz the dog.
And yet again I would have lost.

The Bad Wolf

The bad wolf trapped her far from home,
The dark hunter of fleshed dreams,
A shadowless prowler in the dark holes we dig,
In the long nights we spend to assure ourselves,

Revenge Of The Puppets

We are tiny puppets. Playing in a cardboard house. We dance for your amusement. Every night at nine. Our little feet pad up and down. Marching in a row. Our master plays our lives out. To make a big show. We vie for your attention. Please can you spare a penny. We are but tiny puppets. Made from sack and yarn. Our bodies filled with straw. Weighed down with rocks and stone.
He tied our hands with string.
Your safety is important.
Our mouths are sewn tightly shut.


I can feel the falling.
I can feel the dip.
I can feel the pressure, turning in my head.
I can feel the tingle.

Oh Mercurial Me

Oh mercurial me...
A tree I am not, for;
Like bark I peel,
Like leaves I fall,

The Well

A thousand words.
A thousand tears.
I have spilled out for you.
A sound i now hope snakes through your veins.
