TIME KILLS

Time kills.

The Dead kill.

They play no favorites.

We all become victims.

Prey for their games.

Cages will entrap us.

Lost in a maze of rooms.

Welcome.

 

THE DEAD GAME 

 

HE HAS COME FOR ME

evil one

HE HAS COME FOR ME

Do my eyes deceive me?
Can this be true?
A creature is stalking me
Through the dark streets.

Eyes black as night,
Cries as soft as the wind,
Sharp claws tapping a sad melody.
It draws closer to me still.

The mansion’s gates yawn open.
My feet leave tracks in the mud,
Handprints where I fall in my haste.
Salty tears splash on the rocks.

The mansion waits in its dark glory
For the innocent and weary.
It sheds its shell like a caterpillar,
But no butterfly does it become.

The creature gains ground,
A stalker in its feline prance.
Whiskers pointed to the wind,
Skulking closer to me.

One last stumble for me
As my knees graze the rocks.
My fingers climb the steps,
Digging deep into the dirt.

I turn one last time.
The dark one stands up,
Reaching its full height.
On two feet it stands tall.

Yellow eyes glisten in the dark,
No whiskers to follow my scent.
White skin for black fur,
Laughter falls from his lips.

He has come for me,
Walking on muscled legs.
Sure and strong is his gait
For no more does he crawl.

“Come to me!” he says.​
“No more games for us to play.”
His hand reaches for mine
As I back away from his touch.

“I refuse to belong to you.”
My voice shakes in despair.
I will not follow him
To the land of beyond.

The house swallows me whole.
A maze of rooms for shelter,
I am hidden inside its walls.
Darkness shields​ me from harm.

THE DEAD GAME

STRANGE

Why is there a big cat in my bedroom?

Am I awake or still sleeping?

It’s watching me.

Waiting for something.

Go away!

Oh no!

Now my clock has come to life.

Its eyes are ticking back and forth.

Is it my cat or my clock?

Stranger and stranger.

Cats.

There are cats everywhere.

Staring at me.

Help!

Do you feel a little strange?

Your eyes are blurry.

Kindly step away from the computer.

5 STAR REVIEW OF THE DEAD GAME         

5.0 out of 5 stars deliberately leads the reader into a Pandora’s Box, creating a paradoxical effect that is most imaginative and rare…….., February 17, 2015 

By Amaria – See all my reviews

This review is from: The Dead Game (Paperback) 
Usually I don’t like vampire stories, their trite and Susanne Leist’s “The Dead Game” is like a scavenger hunt with a twist of the board game “Clue”. Every character is like a chess piece and just when you think you’ve got checkmate, you realize the game isn’t over yet. Leist has added a refreshing twist with this with a lot of plot twists which prolongs the suspense aspect which keeps the intrigue intense. It’s like Hollywood story meets “The Munsters.” Starting with the haunted house deliberately leads the reader into a Pandora’s Box, creating a paradoxical effect that is most imaginative and rare. Very creative!

PEOPLE TO KILL

 

 

What a great sign.

It could be sitting at the

entrance to Oasis.

A town plagued by evil.

Evil in its many forms.

Vampires, human vampires,

and vampire derivatives.

Playing their deadly games.

At the expense of unsuspecting

tourists and residents.

Come and join the fun.

You can be added to their kill list.

Don’t miss out.

Your life could end today.
