The Party of Dolls on the Walls

There once was a party,

There once were 12 guests.

The rules were quite simple...

Smile or be dead.

The clock will strike 12, the fun will begin.

Death's diamond door is open at the end.

Someone is imitating, someone is lost.

The watchmaker's whirr whirr whirr whirring...

The watchmaker's spin spin spin spinning...

Look at yourself in the mirror with different eyes.

Your head will swing in time with some crazy dripping tune.

Your tiny hands are frozen...are frozen...are frozen...

Each guest hated mice, and each guest had a secret.

The first to dance will be the one who couldn’t keep it.

The second to eat will be the one to choke.

The third to sleep will be the one to snap.

The fourth to drink will be the one to clap.

The fifth to sing will be the one to crack.

The sixth to laugh will be the one to scratch.

The seventh to see the demon in hiding will break.

The eighth to lie about the mice will be the one to cry.

The ninth that had stood there and simply observed,

Will tap away to the woods and be lost to all.

Who is the traitor in this midst of deception?

Who is there left that can still keep smiling?

The watchmaker's heart is twisting.

The diamond bands are breaking.

This is the party of little dolls,

The smiling party of the little dolls on the walls,

All of them will smile, or I’ll leave them behind.

All of them will smile, or I’ll leave them to the mice.

William Elliott Kern: Andrew, I felt the terror of the hospital fire, the loss of lives, the hospital closed for some 30 plus years, and now, a girl is seen in the upper floors, which opens the religious aspect to your story, faith in what? overall i enjoyed the story, the progression and character development and th...

trippix1963: Not really a big surprise at the end, but it's pretty well written and fun. I liked the characters - they were more developed than in some successful published books I've read. A few typos but I've seen that in published books in the last few years.

Divyanshu Rao: nice to read this book,,,,, i am sharing this with my friends too,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,must read.......

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read.Great job!

gabita123mb: The characters are well described, you can feel every emotion, the places are well described, and there are just like 2-3 words that have grammar mistakes. Read it, you will have a lot of fun, tears in your eyes, worry, anger, love, and awkward moments is a perfect book.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Sammy Styles: It is one of those stories that keeps you on the hook till the last moment. A roll of pictures were piling up and with continuous moving, it was like I was watching a film. The scenes were dramatic with a bit of every emotion. The story contains every essence of mystery, romance and adventur...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

Nishant Jain: Plus points-* the story is quite interesting* well detailed(u can easily imagine andpicture what the narrator is trying to say)* huge twist in the endImprovements-- i feel the story unfolds a bit slowlyIt is definitely worth a shot. I have no regrets reading BREAKING POINT.

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.
