HEAR THEM ROAR

lesstalkmoreillustration

Tigers pace in their cages,

Waiting to be set free.

Animals fill the basement.

An awful sight to see.

Leashes jangle against bars.

Metal against metal rings loud.

As the gates slowly lift open,

Pointy teeth glisten without sound.

This cannot be happening.

This cannot be so.

No way are there tigers

in the basement below.

THE DEAD GAME by Susanne Leist

I MUST CHOOSE A SIDE

A mansion rises from the mist.

Will I even be missed?

Vampires descend the stairs

with their haughty stares.

There is nowhere to hide,

I must choose a side.

HE LIGHTS MY FIRE

He lights my fire
to take me higher.

The town’s on fire,
set by the sire.

He comes tonight
for the big fight.

He comes for me
from the dark sea.

WHERE THE WIND BLOWS

The trees of the forest shiver and shake,

their long limbs trembling for the next quake.

Their bodies blaze a glaring white

with tears frozen from their new plight. 

The world has become hard and cold.

My trembling body feels old.

Surrounded on four sides by white, 

the bright glare has blinded my sight.

White is the color of my nightgown

as I stand and shiver with a frown.

A shadow emerges from the trees.

I hope it is not him, pretty please.

My body moves forward against my will.

I grab a thick tree and try to hold still.

I dig my feet into the packed snow,

but I must go where the wind might blow.

A MERRY CHASE

The Dead lead us on a merry chase.

Across the border, we go.

HEART AND SOUL

Amidst the flowers and sunshine of Florida

lies an evil so deadly, few speak of it.

The residents of Oasis chose to fight it.

Will they lose their hearts or souls to it?

PREY FOR THE DEAD

IN THE NIGHT

In the sea breeze,

you can hear their sighs.

In the white sand,

you can see their footsteps.

They come in the night.

They come for you.
