PARADISE

Source:

 

Sit by the shore.

I don’t need more.

The orange sun sets for me.

I’m as happy as can be.

Florida is paradise.

Its sand feels smooth and so nice.

The nights might be cold.

Demons roam I’m told.

But enjoy the salty air.

Until the vampires come near.

THE DEAD GAME

 

SWEPT AWAY

SWEPT AWAY

Lights twinkle on the horizon.

A horizon tinted pink by the night.

I walk past the mosaic trimmed pool.

A trade wind follows me.

I’m being swept away.

By the view.

By the lights.

By the beauty.

A contented sigh drifts on the wind.
