DEADLY GAMES

horrorchic87:

 

Louise & her friends escaped End House.

But the deadly game was far from over.

She dashed across the beach,

mounds of sand hitting her face.

On the walkway, 

branches swiped at her.

Main Street stood empty.

Silent.

Candles flickered in the park.

A wind propelled her

toward the lights.

Thrust into the gazebo by an unseen force,

Louise felt like a puppet on a string.

A noose wrapped around her neck.

She hung from the wooden beams.

Hooded creatures circled her.

The noose tugged tighter.

The world spun.

The shadows slowed.

They chanted in an unfamiliar language,

Their hoods casting their faces in shadows.

The winds turned wilder,

moaning in unison with the voices.

Louise recognized a face before she losing consciousness,

but it was too late for her or the town of Oasis.

THE DEAD GAME has begun.

THE NIGHT COMES

 

 

The night comes,

Dragging its feet,

Lurking in the corners.

Come to me.

I can’t wait much longer.

Your time is limited.

Enter my domain.

The wind sighs.

The moon shows its face.

The birds flee.

The spirits rise.

Yes, move closer.

CLOSER TO THE BLUE

 

CLOSER TO THE BLUE

 

Puffy clouds appear far and few

In the aqua sky so brand new.

I sink deeper into the white sand,

My heart beating like a marching band.

 

If I close my eyes tight,

will I see paradise this night?

It takes me back to the time

When everything had been fine.

 

Fantasy, I beseech thee.

Return me so I can roam free.

Take me back to the shore.

Where I’d been happy before.

OCTOBER

 

October arrives on hesitant feet

after September bows in defeat.

October holds its head high

until it must wave goodbye.

The crowning glory is Halloween,

the best time to party and be seen.

October soon leaves on dragging feet

as November arranges its defeat.

THE OTHER SIDE

 

 

What’s on the other side?

Don’t be afraid or hide.

What will you see?

Will you be free?

Color replaces black,

But watch your friend’s back.

Night creatures out for fun

In the Florida sun.

Mansions to explore.

Parties and much more.

One step at a time.

And follow this rhyme.

And soon you will be there.

Who knew it was so near?

TO BE ME

Archan Nair – New Illustration titled “ Hue “

 

I feel lost and confused.

I feel dizzy and unsure.

My mind is pulled

in opposite directions.

What do I want?

I want to create.

Throw paint on a wall.

Write books.

Compose poetry.

I want to create.

I’M A MAN

“I’m a man

Can’t you see what I am?

I live and I breathe for you

But what good does it do

If I ain’t got you, ain’t got?

You don’t know what it’s like, baby

You don’t know what it’s like

To love somebody

To love somebody

The way I love you”
