A PUFF OF SMOKE

Puff of smoke

 

 

A puff of smoke.

A flicker of light.

Life is sweet.

Life is short.

Gone in a puff of smoke.

Don’t close your eyes.

The candles flicker.

A life is gone.

Only THE DEAD

have the power.

Only THE DEAD

hold the cure.

Only THE DEAD

know who’s next.

IN THE NIGHT

They come in the night,

footsteps in the sand.

They climb through windows

to visit the sleeping.

They take recruits

while others rest in peace.

In time for the morning sun,

the footsteps are gone.

THE DEAD GAME HAS BEGUN

takingoffmyhood: stairs

 

I slip on the steps

and catch hold of the rickety banister.

A single light bulb swings on its chain,

revealing a dark basement ahead.

The door slams shut behind us.

I run to it.

It’s locked.

We move as one.

The floor fills with water.

I’m submerged to my knees.

The walls rattle.

Cages descend on ropes.

As they sway near us,

sharp stakes extend

from the bottom edges.

Circular saws follow them,

swirling between the empty cages.

THE DEAD GAME has begun.

CAN IT BE ALIVE?

 

The statue moves forward.

A sigh drifts through the still air.

Maybe it’s a moan.

Its head faces me.

Dark eyes stare at me.

It’s time to run.

Let the games begin.

SHUT THE BLINDS

SHUT THE BLINDS
You can shut the blinds.
You can close your lights.
You can hide in your room.
But you can’t keep out The Dead.

THE DEAD AND GONE

 

 

THE DEAD AND GONE

A town where the snow is black,

bringing coldness and fear.

Old remnants of tears held back,

and times too hard to bear.

 

Woven from black sheets of rain,

fear covers in disarray.

Anguished and frozen with pain,

dark petals fall in dismay.

 

Hell has come to Oasis,

The Dead and gone at its side.

Now hidden behind faces

that are well-known far and wide.

 

Who will fall prey to The Dead?

I hope it is not me.

I’m hiding under my bed.

I’m afraid as I can be.
