Trapped in my body.
Trapped with my insecurities.
Can I break free?
It will be painful.
I will break the walls.
I can do it.
I will do it.
Goodbye to doubters.
Hello to the new me.
FOLLOW THE LIGHTS
Follow the lights to the house of glass.
There will be much splendor in the grass.
Lights in the trees as far as the eye could see.
A more decadent event there could not be.
Champagne will flow until the wee hours.
Come with me and dance among the flowers.
This room full of guests gives me a chill.
Maybe we should leave, I’ve had my fill.
Stares follow us in the room.
They’ll be upon us too soon.
The guests are not what they appear.
Beneath, they are just bones and hair.
THE DEAD GAME
A day of fun for all.
Follow the bouncing ball
past the booths of games
to the house of mirrors.
Inside, you’ll find me,
a clown of your nightmares,
ready to take you on a tour
that will lead to endless horrors.
This isn’t a carnival
but a voyage into your nightmares.
Buckle your seat belts
and enjoy the ride.
THE DEAD GAME SERIES by Susanne Leist
Let’s take the road to nowhere.
Anywhere but here.
Far, far away.
Somewhere else to stay.
