A CREATURE OF THE NIGHT

A creature of the night

who walks in the moonlight.

Don’t play his game.

Don’t be fooled

by his perfect shell.

For inside he’s empty,

without a soul.

FOOTSTEPS FOLLOW ME

They appear in front of me

and then behind me.

Am I being followed,

or led down an evil path?

NIGHTWALKER

Shadows surround me.

Footsteps follow me.

Hands circle my neck.

Is that a love peck?

He tastes my blood.

I fall into a red flood.

Will I belong to him?

He watches with a grin.

I’ve become a nightwalker,

a present from my stalker.

TIME STANDS STILL

The Dead arrive

in the dark of night.

Time stands still.

Birds take flight.

I’ve had my fill

of demons in the night.

SILENCE REIGNS SUPREME

Silence reigns supreme.

The sun hides its face.

Palm trees shake their leaves.

Winds quicken their pace.

The hotel stands deserted.

Flapping sounds fill the air.

Dark shadows join the fray

beneath his icy stare.

SNOW IS BLACK

A town where the snow is black,

bringing coldness & fear.

Old remnants of tears held back,

and times too hard to bear.

Woven from black sheets of rain,

fear covers in disarray.

Anguished & frozen with pain,

dark petals fall in dismay.

A MANSION RISES FROM THE MIST

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.

MY FAVORITE REVIEW

This is still my favorite review of The Dead Game.

5.0 out of 5 stars 

There is something painfully wrong about the seemingly perfect town of Oasis

The opening pages of “The Dead Game” grab you at the ankles and drag into the deeper story. There is something painfully wrong about the seemingly perfect town of Oasis. Without getting into spoilers, here’s my take. Leist’s cast of characters are interesting in and of themselves. They do leave you wanting to get to know them better; yet, as in real life you only get to see the sides and masks that others want you to see. That, to me, was the author’s point. Everyone in Oasis seems to have an agenda, and it’s hard to know what to believe. With that in mind, Leist does a great job of bringing to life the picturesque town of Oasis, and the menacing End House. The book is reminiscent of tales like “House on Haunted Hill,” yet with its own twists on the supernatural thriller. The story is well-paced and the dangers faced by Leist’s characters feels terrifyingly real. All in all, a good read. I look forward to reading more works from this author.
