THE DEAD DANCE

the dead dance

The party at Diane’s house turns to the supernatural. It offers a medley of vampires, human vampires, and humans.

     After the meeting, Todd led Linda to a quiet corner. “Please return to the dance floor with me.”

     As she spun around the room with Todd, Linda searched for the other human vampires from Oasis. If they were on Todd’s side, then where were they? She wasn’t going to say anything to him about them; he had enough to worry about without her raising additional concerns. And what was a human vampire, anyway? Were they any better than regular vampires? According to Todd, human vampires were still human.

      Tired of worrying about the town and its strange inhabitants, Linda said to Todd, “For just a moment I’d like to believe this evening is magical— what I’d imagined for tonight.” She leaned her head against his shoulder and sighed.

SILENT FEET

Source:

 

 

They walk on silent feet

through the forest so deep.

I must keep moving my feet

without stopping to sleep.

 

The howling wind plays their song

of bloody deaths for us all.

They’re not for this place for long.

They wait for the town to fall.

 

They are surrounding me.

I can’t outrun their reach.

Somehow I must get free

and make it to the beach.

 

The ground is opening.

Sadly I know for whom.

I’m falling in a hole

that will soon be my tomb.

END HOUSE

 

END HOUSE

A house dark and bleak.
I can’t even speak.
Dark shadows glare at me
Where clear windows should be.

Dare I venture inside?
I will swallow my pride
And cross the threshold
without being rash or bold.

There’s a secret party inside.
I wonder if I should run or hide.
Who’s the host of this feast,
Man or dangerous beast?

A FUTURE ALL TOO NEAR

where is everyone? by travisanderson

 

 

What might the future hold?

Buildings of concrete and stone.

Travel by flying cars.

Trees of green foam.

Sunlight only a reflection.

Lighted sabers for protection.

A future hard to bear,

A future all too near.
