a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

He Watched...

as I worked in the shop alone.
I felt his eyes followng me.
I thought he moved,
and as he walked,
his head moved side to side,
missing nothing..
Ancient man doll, you scare me,
with your painted hair and eyes that close.
I worked,
alone,
except for him...

At last, his eyes closed,
and the room seemed brighter. 
May you sell soon, old one.
I shall not miss you.

He is probably looking for the family that will take him home. ;-)

creepy little bastard.

High creep factor here. Watch your back, my friend. I fear a Stephen King or Friday the 13th type script beginning to emerge.

LOL!

He walks in the night, and always is watching, watching, watching. Maybe the USPS man has a box for him.

Great job of creeping out your readers! You really showed us how you felt about the ugly guy doll.
Maybe you should deeply discount him to get him gone!

I have decided he is quite dashing. Creepy yes, but dashing too.

He's Chucky's fifth cousin on his mother's side...yes, there may be a story building here, Rudee.

Too funny!! Great post!!

Nora said...

He's actually kind of cute. Are you sure you want to sell him? I think he needs a girl companion. One in a matching dress with curly hair. Then they could stare at each other instead of you.

Dolls with creepy eyes that open and close have always given me the willies.

Your little story/poem made me smile, though :)

Yes....Encore! You could make an entire Creepy Man Series just by adding more doll friends and some different props. Too fun!

Greepy to me. I cant stand dolls lol never could ! To this day I still cant figure out what it is about them that freaks me out ! Have a good day "SHUDDER " !

DesertHen said...

I agree with Lisa...encore!Creepy story plot for sure!

He is pretty creepy, especially with those eyes that close...blink, blink! I'd have to put him in a box and tape it shut if I was working alone in the building...lol!
