ALONE

ALONE

Alone in a sea of colors.
Drifting in place.
Reflecting on life.
Lost in my thoughts.
No need to move.
No reason to leave.

Not really alone.
Cocooned in my memories.
Amused by my thoughts.
Surrounded by my dreams.
Can never be alone.
Can never be lost.

Relaxed.
Comfortable.
Serene.
Happy.
Falling, falling…
Asleep.

MAGIC CARPET RIDE

Magic Carpet Ride

All in perspective.
Our views differ.
Our points of view vary.
Our outlooks change daily.
What is the truth?
What is in front of us?
Can we see it all?
Or only what we want to see?
Round and round we go
On the merry-go-round of life,
Taking in the views,
Our own unique views.
No one’s view
But our very own.

BLOOD MOON

Bloodmoon

BLOOD MOON

The moon is a foreshadow
Of things to come,
Frightening things,
Unhappy things.

Its red glow creeps through the trees
To the remote town,
Where all are asleep,
Feeling safe in their beds.

Creep, Creep, Creep,
The red mist spreads,
Down the streets
And into the homes.

The fog solidifies,
Forming dark shadows,
Shadows of the night,
Who have come to stay.

Game time!

COME CLOSER

COME CLOSER

Come close to the house.
Dare to peek inside.
You may be surprised
About what we hide.

The air will lift you
Into the night sky.
Come with the others
As you fly up high.

We will convene
In the main hall.
You will find out
What scares us all.

COLORS

COLORS

A pretty picture to soothe my mind.

Bright colors to make feel happy.

A sprinkle of fireworks.

A bright ray of the sun.

A disco ball of mirrors.

A rainbow of colors.

Takes so little.

So little to make my day.


WELCOME

WELCOME

Do you feel unwanted?
Do you feel unwelcome to the town?
Nothing is further from the truth.
You are welcome to Oasis.
When the lights dim.
When the moon rises.
When the night air cools.
You are welcome.
As the darkness descends.
As the dark shadows appear.
As the streets become deserted.
You are welcome.
Welcome to roam the forest.
Welcome to visit End House.
The Dead love visitors.

They are waiting for you.

OASIS

OASIS

A more beautiful place cannot be.
It faces the waves of the dark sea.
White sand and quiet beaches galore.
You can’t ask for anything more.
Life is perfect as can be.
Come and frolic with me.
Tourists visit from far and wide.
Oasis is Florida’s pride.
Beware when The Dead descend.
We can no longer pretend
This is a perfect place to be
As The Dead rise up from the sea.
Darkness brings flying creatures and death.
Beware that this won’t be your last breath.

SWEPT AWAY

SWEPT AWAY

Lights twinkle on the horizon.
A horizon tinted pink by the night.
I walk past the mosaic trimmed pool.
A warm wind follows me.
I’m being swept away.
By the view.
By the lights.
By the beauty.
A contented sigh drifts on the wind.

TRAPPED

TRAPPED

We’re ready for the party.

We’re here for the dancing and music.

But where is everyone?

Candles lead us upstairs

To an endless maze of rooms.

More candles lead us downstairs

To a basement filled with water.

The windows won’t open.

The doors are locked.

Is it safer upstairs or downstairs?

Who will survive this night?

Who will survive this party?

The party has only just begun.

THE SINKHOLE

THE SINKHOLE

A sinkhole where the house has stood

Lies deep in the deserted wood.

Where has everyone gone to?

The grass and trees are gone too.

A house and garden have once stood here.

Now there is only the ground laid bare.

Could they be in the tunnels below?

And hear me if I yell out hello?

I hear rumbling coming from the hole.

The loose rocks are beginning to roll.

I should leave before it’s too late

And I suffer the same sad fate.
