The clouds drift by.
The moon casts its glare.
Time moves in slow motion.
Florida weaves its spell.
The town is asleep.
There’s a rustle in the trees.

The clouds drift by.

The moon casts its glare.

Time moves in slow motion.

Florida weaves its spell.

The town is asleep.

There’s a rustle in the trees.

A cry in the night.

A hint of evil.

A whisper of things to come.

A body left on shore.

Will there be more?

Another night in Oasis, Florida.

THE DEAD TAKE NO PRISONERS

A light glows from the gazebo.

Chanting floats on the howling wind.

Lit candles form a circle inside.

A body dangles in their midst,

swaying in the increasing winds.

Dark figures circle the body.

Their hands raised in prayer.

The Dead Game has begun.

THE DEAD GAME

TIME KILLS

  1. Source:

     

    Time kills.

    The Dead play no favorites.

    We all become their victims.

    Prey for their games.

    Cages to entrap us.

    One door leading to 

    the next deadly door.

    Welcome.

    THE DEAD GAME 

  2.  

    The candle flickers.

    The music plays softly.

    An empty room stands before us.

    The piano keys pound faster.

    The wind screams louder.

    The games are about to begin.

    THE DEAD GAME 

  3.  

    The house welcomes us.

    It plays music for us.

    The keys dance.

    The walls moan.

    Traps await.

    A long night ahead.

HELP ME

 

Why did I accept the invitation?

An unsigned invitation

to a party at a deserted house.

A house with a sinister history.

A history of unsolved disappearances.

One group is trapped in the basement.

Our group is fleeing for our lives.

Sand hits us in the face.

Trees swipe at us

as we reach the walkway.

A body hangs in the gazebo.

Is it one of ours?

Will there be time to get the Sheriff?

It sways back and forth in the wind.

WHO AM I?

 

 

 

Who am I?

Who was I?

A man.

A woman.

A doctor.

A soldier.

Maybe a murderer.

Does it matter?

Does it matter anymore?

We all end up the same.

Underground.

Buried.

But it is how we are

remembered

that matters.

Our memory lingers on.

Be remembered as a

doctor,

soldier,

or murderer.

It’s your choice.

A BODY IN THE NIGHT

TEMPTING

 

 

Sparkle for me ocean so blue.

Shine for me so bright.

Your beauty is entrancing

and much too tempting.

 

I want to throw my body

into your long arms.

Let them wrap

around my cold body.

 

Pull me deeper

into your smooth depths.

No god to defeat us.

No demon to lure us apart.

 

I’m coming inside you now.

My body feels like ice.

Icicles hanging from my hair.

I’m numb from the cold.

 

Warm me.

Soothe me.

Hold me.

I’m dying a slow death.

 

I had trusted you with all my heart.

But my heart has stopped pumping.

I float alone in the cold water. 

No one to save me.

 

I am a fool to have trusted you.

I am a fool no longer.

I am nothing.

DANGLING HORROR

DANGLING HORROR

It dangles before me.

A horror to be felt.

All consuming.

Almost tasted.

Walls closing in.

Becoming a coffin.

My fears circle round.

Waiting to be unleashed.

Darkness holds me in place.

Stiff as a corpse.

A tiny dot of light.

Showing me the way.

A peek at my tormentor.

A glimpse of hell.

TAKE ME TO PARADISE

Creeping shadows

TAKE ME TO PARADISE

I came to Oasis for the trade winds.
I left New York for Florida,
Opened a bookstore in the small town,
Made new friends.

Life was perfect.
Tourists flocked to the Oasis Hotel,
Where they swam and sunbathed,
While they watched the waves roll in.

Then I heard the rumors.
Saw the dead body.
Life wasn’t so perfect anymore.
Oasis was a town of secrets.

Should I stay or should I go?
I love this town.
I love my friends and clients.
But the nights bring dark shadows.

A town of contradictions.
A town of terrors.
What to do?
I must decide soon.

AN OASIS

An Oasis

I may be living in an oasis,
Where the sun shines on a daily basis.
Florida has beautiful flowers and beaches,
But what it may be hiding are deadly leeches.
Dark shadows are following me right now.
I need to escape but I don’t know how.
I don’t want to end up like that dead woman.
I don’t even know if the shadows are human.
