How did I come to be here?

Cold wrapped around me in fear.

No matter how far I walk.

I could hear them move and talk.

Muttering curses on me.

But faces I cannot see.

They surround me on each side.

There’s nowhere for me to hide.

I must get out of here soon.

Before the next full moon.




Floating in the dark of night

After birds have taken flight.

Out in the sea, I drift alone

Where no one else dares to roam.

Tears fall upon my face

As they increase their pace.

I am flooded with grief and despair.

I free my braid and cut chunks of hair.

I don’t need to be a beauty anymore.

He’s walked out of the proverbial door.

I am free to drift with the night or

Visit the depths of the ocean floor.

No one searches for me.

I take a step, I’m free.




The landscape is cold and bleak.

I’m beginning to feel weak.


Ice is melting in my shoes.

I’m getting the winter blues.


I can’t find my way from here.

I had thought the town was near.


I’ve been walking for days.

I’m in some kind of daze.


There’s a break in the rocks ahead.

I hope they don’t leave me for dead.


My friends have to come back to me.

Rocks and trees are all I can see.


My friends are in the park playing ball.

I didn’t have to be afraid at all.




I’m over here.

I can smell your fear.

You won’t be alone.

I can hear your moan.


I’ll be rising soon

On the next full moon.

We’ll rise from down under

On lightning and thunder.


You will not recognize me.

I’ll be different you see.

My new body is strong.

Now do not get me wrong.


I still love you, my dear.

Of that, please have no fear.


THE DEAD GAME continues






Come with me away from it all.

Let’s climb a hill that’s really tall.

An island for me and you,

And skies that are clear and blue.

We will take long walks on the sand,

And don’t forget to take my hand.

I will never feel alone or lonely.

I will always have my one and only.
