EVIL TWIN

Nomad

 

 

The light beckons to me,

Calls from deep in the sea.

I’m tempted you can see.

I do want to be free.

 

I step inside,

Nowhere to hide.

The walls move in.

It’s dark as sin.

 

A door opens right before me

To a sky as clear as can be.

People walk the streets.

Music throbs and beats.

 

It’s a town that resembles mine

With picturesque streets looking fine.

My friend stops to wave and walks to me.

I turn my gaze to the sand and sea.

 

How can this be?

This town can’t be.

A copy of my town.

I cannot help but frown.

 

As friends join the first,

My mind threatens to burst.

I can’t handle another dream.

It’s not as nice as it may seem.

 

My town has deadly powers buried inside

And now has an evil twin to join its side.

I cannot handle this anymore.

I had more than enough blood and gore.

 

The story continues in book two.

 

THE DEAD GAME by Susanne Leist

STEP INSIDE

Step into my world
of vampires and witches.
Demons who walk the nights.
The door waits for you.
Step through to the other side.
Visit a dimension not known by man,
Where dreams become reality
And horror replaces the mundane.
Welcome to The Dead...

 

Step into my world

of vampires and witches.

Demons who walk the nights.

The door waits for you.

Step through to the other side.

Visit a dimension not known by man,

Where dreams become reality

And horror replaces the mundane.

Welcome to The Dead Game.

Your dreams will soon be ours.

THE DEAD GAME 

 

A DOOR

 

 

A door among many others.

A family like all the others.

Eating at the dinner table.

Drinking wine.

Laughing.

But something is off.

The wine is blood.

The dessert are fingers.

A family not like the others.

THE DEAD GAME

TAKE ME TO PARADISE

TAKE ME TO PARADISE

Our imagination entices us.
It takes us to new places.
It fulfills our needs.
It defines us.

With our eyes closed,
We could explore the world.
Nothing to limit us.
Nothing to get in our way.

Oceans could be crossed.
Far away places visited.
Mountains climbed.
Passions enjoyed.

Doors to be opened.
Thresholds crossed.
Our minds have the capabilities.
So many possibilities.

A closed door stands before me.
Hiding its own secrets. 
I will not let it
Stop me or inhibit me.

I will cross its threshold 
With eyes wide open.
Ready to take on the day
And maybe even the night.

The door opens to flowers and sunshine.
Lounge chairs on the hot sand.
The sun shining on the ocean,
Revealing palettes of blues and greens.

A perfect paradise waits for me.
A bathing suit lies across a chair.
Time for a swim and a tan.
A beautiful escape.

Maybe a little too perfect?
The sea breeze becomes a little rougher.
The waves stand a little taller.
The palm trees whip around in the wind.

It is my fantasy.
Its direction is in my hands.
Storm or a peaceful, tropical day.
Some excitement is definitely needed.

Heavy winds approach Oasis’ shore.
I make a quick retreat to the hotel.
I join my friends at the bar 
As palm trees fly across the pool deck.

I will follow my imagination
To wherever it may lead.
I hope this story has a happy ending.
For me and the town of Oasis, Florida.

THE DEAD GAME

ARE YOU READY?

WILL CURIOSITY BE THE DEATH OF YOU?

The door.

The fear of not knowing.

The fear of knowing.

What to do?

Open it and step inside.

You might be happy.

Or you might be dead.

But you’ll never know

until you open that door.
