A PERFECT PARADISE

paradise is here
A perfect oasis on the shore.
You could not ask for anything more.
Sun and surf during the day,
But at night there’s hell to pay.
The waves welcome daily swimmers,
But at night there are no winners.
Afraid to venture out after dark,
Residents stay clear of the town park.
One night, a hanging party was had
By the dark creatures who are plain bad.
Our town is plagued by darkness and woe.
We don’t even know who is our foe.

THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE FALLS

 

brooklyn

The river flows black.
The sky lights up.
Red, orange, and yellow bursts.
Then I hear the explosion.
Loud and deafening. 
My ears ring.
The bridge is in flames.
The beautiful Brooklyn Bridge.
Pieces of metal land in the water.
Cries fill the cold air. 
I’m lost in the frightened crowd.
Someone takes my hand.
I’m pulled to a building.
The door is locked and bolted.
I follow him from building to building.
Until we find an unlocked door.
Sounds of sirens follow us inside.
The door slams shut behind us.
Lines of cars face us.
I look up to see his face.
He turns away.
He leads me down a ramp.
I dig in my heels.
I must see his face.
He turns to me…
I wake up.
I still wonder…about his face.

 

 

 

FLORIDA SUNSHINE

 

 

The sun smiles upon us

As we take the tour bus.

The sun chuckles and grins

As we dive with our fins.

It roasts our bodies red

that we take to our bed.

It leaves for the night,

Leaving the moonlight.

Shadows enter our room

In the light of the moon.

We run for our lives

From this paradise.

The sun rules the day.

At night The Dead play.

MIDNIGHT

 

My thoughts drift to him.

He fils me with longings.

Cold as the night air.

He flies free in the dark.

But yet he returns for me.

I dare not go to meet him.

In the dark forest at midnight.

I must hold strong and steady.

I must remain with my own kind.

With whom I feel safe and secure.

And never venture into the woods.

To rekindle his dark flame.

I must hold strong and steady.

Or my light will turn to dark.

WAIT FOR THE NIGHT

 

Wait for the night.

To darken the sky.

In deep shades of red.

To purples fading to black.

Silence follows on gossamer wings.

To quiet uneasy heartbeats.

To soothe roaming beasts.

Wait for the night.

To bring a dark veil on activities.

To unfurl the roaring waves.

Silence is here.

And so is the night.

NIGHT IS COMING

 

The tombstones are dancing.

The winds are blowing.

Blades of grass are ruffling.

Night is coming.

To the town.

To the cemetery.

Where The Dead wait.

They wait for darkness.

For theirs shadows to blend in.

The streets of town they will walk.

Innocent victims they will find.

The games are about to begin.

NIGHT WALKERS

 

The Dead are rising

From tunnels deep within the earth.

Locked away for centuries

By a witch’s curse.

They are back once again in Oasis,

Wearing masks they have perfected.

They gather in force

To fight The Watchers.

The last battle to end all battles.

THE MIST

 

The mist follows me

through the dark forest.

It leaves cold fingerprints

on my shivering body.

The moon hides its face

from the evil below.

Stars lose their sparkle

as The Dead walk the night.

I must reach the town

before I become one of them.

Walkers of the night.

Demons of the first order.

A GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN

 

Alone with nature.

A feeling like no other.

A sky filled with birds.

Purple with the fading sun.

Sea breezes wrap around me.

Cocooning me in their mist.

Life stands still for this picture.

A glimpse of heaven from above.

PLAYING WITH FIRE

 

They’re playing with our lives.

Taking whom they want.

When they want.

For their deadly games.

They dare to walk our streets.

Dark shadows of the night.

Enter our homes.

Customers in our stores.

Guests in our hotel.

They hide in plain sight.

Beware of The Dead.

They take no prisoners.
