MOONLIT FOREST

Walk with me

through the moonlit forest,

Our feet graze the blades of grass,

Held aloft by our love and passion.

Follow me through the endless night

To a land where no man walks.

Only creatures dark as the sky

Dare to venture forth alone.

Love has no bounds or shackles.

We will be free to display our passion,

Without fear from humanity,

As long as you belong to me.

Come with me, my ice princess.

Step away from the burning plains,

Where the heat burns your flesh,

And love is hampered by the living.

Wolf extends his hand toward me,

Words flowing from him,

His lips never uttering a sound,

But his meaning is clear.

We can be together,

But the other has followed us.

He will try to take me back

And never relinquish his hold.

His eyes burn red with passion.

Fire follows his footsteps,

Scorching a trail through the grass,

Melting his enemy’s cold trail.

They face each other.

Hot and cold from opposite poles,

Dueling until the end of time,

Fighting for me.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

DANCE WITH ME

 

frozen Dance

 

 

Dance with me until the moon hides its face,
and the sun attempts to quicken the pace.
From the sunlight vampires turn their face,
And dancers twirl to the light’s frenzied pace.

A RED GLOW

red glow

Alexander Calder, Sumac V. 1953.

 

A glow in the night

will lead me astray

from the moon’s light

to where I can’t say.

 

Bloody prints mark the way

to a small town on the shore.

At the end of the day,

we are at the devil’s door.

 

Time has no meaning or reason.

You can travel forward or back.

Death will follow with each season.

It is past time for me to pack.

FOLLOW THE LIGHTS

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...

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.

I WAIT FOR HIM

1521521185703-take-me-to-the-limit-one-more-time

 

Lost in her suffering in a town of despair,

Linda knows not how to release herself from here.

She gazes out at the big bright moon,

Knowing full well what it will bring soon.

THE DEAD GAME

THE END

 

 

The end is coming near.

The end that we hold dear.

Darkness will invade.

It will come in spade.

Time is our enemy,

Which we have aplenty.

The waves grow stronger.

The days become longer.

The sun hides its face.

No longer in its place.

The moon takes over.

Please, take cover.

There’s nowhere to hide.

Is time on our side?

THE DEAD are here.

There’s much to fear.

THE MOON RISES

Source:

 

 

Creak.

Crunch.

The air moves.

Squeak.

Moan.

The trees shake.

I shouldn’t have come alone.

In the dark.

After the sun sets.

The moon rises.

And so do The Dead.
