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.

A DEAD MAN’S DREAMS

 

Step inside.

A mansion is waiting.

It might appear deserted,

rundown and unused.

The inside tells

a different story.

Walk on marble floors

through rooms of delight.

Rooms of different eras,

reflecting a dead man’s dreams.

A man with no life or future,

who waits for the end of time.

A house fit for a prince

or a prince of darkness.

AN UNDERCURRENT OF EVIL

halftimeprincess:

 

Guests dance

between frozen statues.

Statues of ice.

Sad expressions for eternity.

Tears flow on frosty cheeks.

Beneath the music and gaiety

lies an undercurrent of evil.

Time to leave this cold paradise

and escape, if one can.

Escape this deadly game

of The Dead.

WILL CURIOSITY BE THE DEATH OF YOU?

Open the door

 

The door.

The fear of not knowing.

The fear of knowing.

What to do?

Open the door and step inside.

You might be happy.

Or you might be dead.

You’ll never know until you open the door.

THE DEAD GAME SERIES

WALK ALONE

dark bridge

I walk alone at night

when the moon is full height.

The sky black as tar,

but I won’t walk far.

I search for the shadow

on a road so narrow.

I want to see who he’s become;

The Dead leader, the evil one.

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?

An Unwelcome Surprise

An Unwelcome Surprise By Susanne Leist

 

Lights sparkle like stars on the walls.

Spots of color guide my journey.

Past closed doors, I walk, my head lowered, my steps slow.

I feel my way along the walls, the lights warm beneath my fingertips.

A cold wind hits the back of my neck.

I turn to the dark corridor before me.

Dark shadows twist into shapes, and an arm beckons to me.

Heart pounding in a tempo matching my chattering teeth, I stand frozen against the wall.

A knob hits me in the back.

My arm reaches behind, and I twist the knob.

I step back into the room.

The door shuts in my face.

I turn around.

Water flows beneath my feet.

An azure sky surrounds me.

I walk forward. The scene fades to black.

A brisk cold wind replaces the warmth.

In the distance walks a woman wearing a yellow raincoat and black rubber boots.

She approaches me with an ax in one hand and a black garbage bag in the other.

I back against the door, jiggling the knob.

Locked.

She stands before me and smiles.

I lift my eyes to eyes shimmering blood red.

“Would you like to fill this bag for me?”

She raises the empty black bag.

I swallow the lump in my throat and shake my head.

Dots of lights shoot before my eyes.

The room swims.

I shut my eyes and fall to the ground.
