OUR SPECIAL PLACE

When the music plays,

and your body sways,

let my arms hold you,

and my body spoons you.

We’ll sashay to our own beat

and let the town fall at our feet.

As the demons fall from grace,

this remains our special place.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

Will We Fall Prey to The Dead?

Brutal winds follow close on my heels,
Thunder and lightning joining the crusade.
Fluorescent lights paint the night sky,
Rings of orange, yellow, and red.


A vortex of horror in unending circles
Makes its way to the small town of Oasis,
Where I will be waiting with a sword in hand,
Secure in the knowledge Wolf won’t win.


The Watchers have joined the battle.
They stand on the hill beyond,
Their raincoats flapping in the wind,
Concealing their cache of weapons.

We will protect Linda from the devil,
An army standing strong against the harsh winds.
The Father clutches his bible of spells,
Ready to cast the evil from our town.

We have come together as one,
Humans, vampires, and human vampires.
The last battle on this earthly planet,
Which will determine our combined fate.

Linda clings to her friends,
Huddled together in the storm.
Will she choose wisely and correctly?
Will she choose me above The Dead?

The time has come for the showdown.
Time has slowed to a halt.
We raise our weapons above our heads,
Waiting for evil to make its final appearance.

Wolf has been given a new body,
But I recognize his deadly soul.
A new package for an old one
Does not change the battle to be won.

Our games have just begun.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

ESCAPE THE SNOWSTORM

The Dead walk the bitter cold.

Florida nights have lost their charm.

Wolf may be centuries old,

But he will never do me harm.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

He might be in disguise.
I recognize his eyes.
He has come back for me.
He’ll never set me free.

QUEEN OF THE DEAD

The coldness wraps around me.

My hair drips icicles down my neck.

I shiver in dread of my future.

My future as the queen of The Dead.

I AM WOLF

My cold fingers will run down her hot body.
She will wake to the sight of my glowing eyes.
She will experience passion not human.
And she will yearn for much more.
The dark prince will take her in his arms
And place her on his black steed.
I am Wolf.
