In a town so pure and sweet
lies a secret hidden deep

you can search high and low
you'll never find which way to go

faces plastered with a smile
gentle gestures, "stay awhile"

look beyond that curling grin...

everyone takes a part in it
even if they never mean it

(They never see it)

Turn a cheek and turn a chin
they wash their hands with soap and sin
move along now stand in line
take a ticket 'till it's time.

Once they have you in your place
this is where you'll spend your days

killing everything inside...

(and this is how their secret dies...)
Sometimes while I cook dinner I start reciting poetry ideas in my head.

This is very interesting and different. I can actually see the little town that lures unknowing souls into its depths never letting them go. You gave me chills ;) great job!! :heart:

This is probably the first horror poetry piece I've read. And it does have a bit of creepiness to it and it's interesting to see it enveloped in the charming form a poem.

Haha, this is where I live....oh my god....this little hillbilly hell where they just suck you in with the false little mask that the whole town seems to wear...and no one ever leaves. They just...fade away. I really shouldn't be laughing so hard at this...I think it's panic.

Love it!

This reminds me of a film I watched about a village that guarded the secret of the fountain of youth.

An interesting read.

I enjoy how your poetry comes to you. For me, I think it's when I'm brushing my teeth, or putting away the dishes =D
This is pretty fascinating....
