The Bad Beginning

To Beatrice -

Darling, dearest, dead.

 

The Reptile Room

For Beatrice -

My love for you shall live forever.

You, however, did not.

 

The Wide Window                 

For Beatrice –

I would much prefer it if you were alive and well.

 

The Miserable Mill                 

To Beatrice –

My love flew like a butterfly

Until death swooped down like a bat

As the poet Emma Montana McElroy said:

"That's the end of that."

 

The Austere Academy            

For Beatrice –

You will always be in my heart,

In my mind,

And in your grave.

 

The Ersatz Elevator

When we met my life began,

Soon afterward, yours ended.

 

The Vile Village    

For Beatrice –

When we were together I felt breathless.

Now you are.

For Beatrice –

Summer without you is as cold as winter.

Winter without you is even colder.

 

The Carnivorous Carnival    

For Beatrice –

Our love broke my heart,

And stopped yours.

 

The Slippery Slope                 

For Beatrice –

When we first met, you were pretty, and I was lonely.

Now I am pretty lonely.

 

The Grim Grotto    

For Beatrice –

Dead women tell no tales.

Sad men write them down.

 

The Penultimate Peril            

For Beatrice -

No one could extinguish my love,

Or your house.

 

The End

For Beatrice -

I cherished, you perished.

The world's been nightmarished

 

Chapter Fourteen  

For Beatrice -

 

We are like boats passing in the night -

 

Particularly you.
