THE DEAD COME ALIVE AT NIGHT

 

The hotel floor creaks.

I slowly turn around.

Where are The Dead freaks?

I hear no other sound.

 

The lights flicker.

Can the rumors be true?

I feel sicker.

The Dead will take me too.

 

I can see their faces.

Dark eyes stare at me

As they take their places.

I’ll never be free.

 

I run through the hall,

But I’m running in place.

I give up and fall.

A grin covers his face.

 

He leers at me.

Eyes glowing bright red.

A sight to see.

I won’t see my bed.

 

He lifts me in his arms.

We fly into the dark night.

I won’t fall for his charms.

The Dead come alive at night.

 

A GARDEN FOR THE DEAD

Source:

 

 

Frozen in place.

Dripping tears for centuries.

Memories of a lifetime.

Praying for salvation.

A frown for eternity.

Will her tears sprout

a garden for The Dead?

BEYOND THE DOOR

 

 

BEYOND THE DOOR

Beyond the door, they wait.

Dripping blood will be your fate.

 

Walk through the doorway

To where The Dead play.

 

Their games continue through the night

Until the first ray of morning light.

 

Once you join their pack,

There’s no turning back.

 

A pale finger beckons to you.

Please hurry to find your way through.

 

The looking glass never appeared so fine.

Come to me, my darling, you’ll be mine.

 

THE DEAD GAME

I WILL BE GONE

Palm – 170114

 

A nip in the air.

A chill in my bones.

The Dead will be here

And in our own homes.

 

Palm trees will shiver.

The ground will quake

Along the river

And by the lake.

 

Take me far away

From this creepy place.

I refuse to stay

And see his pale face.

GOODBYE TO OASIS

 

THE DEAD GAME – Goodbye to Oasis

 

Big waves crashing to shore.
Can’t take anything more.
Water hitting my face.
I can’t keep this fast pace.

Creatures at my back.
My world turning black.
Fear filling me with dread.
It’s them – the walking dead.

Fleeing the streets of the town,
Sidewalks turn a muddy brown.
The horrors follow me,
Nowhere safe left for me.

I can see the church’s tower.
It used to be the town’s power.
Now it stands defeated and dark.
I must cut through the shadowed park.

What future holds for this poor town?
Where everything is upside down.
The Dead have come for us at last.
We will soon be part of its past.

BLACK AS NIGHT

cat eyes roses

 

Black as night.
Dark as death.
The evil one has come
For me this night.

His eyes shine in the dark.
He sees me and much more.
He walks the earth.
At night he’s the lore.

I cannot run.
I cannot hide.
He knows my secrets.
He knows where I hide.

The roses are wilting.
They crumble in despair.
No colors to lighten their mood.
Only black as they tear.

No footsteps hit the ground.
He walks with the wind.
His body whispers past me.
Chilly fingers brush my face.

He has me in his arms.
We take flight with the stars.
The man in the moon winks.
He takes delight in our games.

I close my eyes in defeat.
He has won yet again.
Cold lips crush mine
As I yield to his touch.

OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN

THE DEAD GAME

RED

Hues of red fill the humid air.

The residents hide behind closed doors.

The tourists huddle in fear at the hotel.

The town waits deserted and quiet.

The woods rumble with music.

Dignitaries visit from around the world.

Limousines line the paths to the glass house,

Where guests fill the dance floor.

Linda watches them laugh and drink.

An undercurrent lies beneath the gaiety.

As if evil waits to raise its ugly head.

The Dead Game has begun.
