The Weeping Pages/ Poetry

She opened the book with the thought in mind that the remedy was finally here. She thumbed cautiously through the content exploring on damp page after another until she developed a sense that gave meaning to her purpose...  First of all, I informed her of "The Tainted One." Secondly, I shared with her My Pain." Thirdly, I asked her, "What Have I Done?" Finally, she read "The Last Poem" She closed the book just after collapsing aimlessly by a window that over looked the yard. I noticed a tear fall from her eye... and then I noticed another. I joined her as she wept. She looked at me timidly as she gathered herself. "What was this?" She asked. I told her it was... The Weeping Pages.

Maddie Ann's Playground

Old Creek, Wiscousin was neither notorious nor famous continently, but locally stories connected the town with a touch of evil. In eithteen hundred eithgy-five, a little five-year-old girl, Maddie Ann was seduced by that very evil.

For the years to follow, the Old Creek cemetery became a place to fear and avoid for good reasons. Once you walked through that iron gate, you never returned. For over one hundred and fifty years, the town held the cemetery in contempt, but as with all things, truths turned to fables and fables turned to myths and then to unbelievable wives tales; bedtime stories to chill the young at heart around campfires.

Bizaar things happened and disappearances occurred, but people in this modish day and age didn't put much stock into the warnings of their elders. Six foolish high school, girls, friends from early on dismissed the stories as so much fluff, on Holloween night of all nights, tempted evil, and entered: Maddie Ann's Playground.
