THE BLOOD MOON

Source:

 

The blood moon is here.

It’s come for me.

Be sure to take care.

It’s come for you.

Red flies through the air.

It’s come for the town.

I can smell the fear.

Come with me, my dear.

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

Source:

 

 

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.

GONE FOR GOOD

Source:

 

 

A fog rolls into town,

blanketing the streets.

A silence descends

as night takes over.

A crow watches

and waits.

The moon rises

with the creatures.

Shadows walk softly,

leaving no footsteps behind.

A trail of dead bodies 

lie scattered In their wake.

The sun opens one eye,

afraid to see the damage.

But it must rise

and shed its light.

A burden the residents

of Oasis must bear.

In silence.

In secrecy.

Until The Dead 

are gone for good.

RETURN FOR ME

 

 

My thoughts drift to him.

He fills me with longing.

Cold as the night air.

He returns for me.

I dare not go to him.

I must resist his lure.

Or my light will turn dark.

THE DEAD GAME

 

WHO GOES THERE?

THE MIGHTY SPELL

Mare (live in Kraków)

 

A spot of evil.

A dash of hell.

A flicker of candlelight.

A skull or two.

Are you prepared

To fight The Dead?

Don’t forget your spell book.

A mighty spell can take them down.

THE RETURN

Source:

 

 

Wolf returns to Oasis.

We’ve missed him.

His good looks.

Charming personality.

Deadly ways.

Will he arrive as a bat,

Or maybe as a wolf?

He could take the place

Of one of our own.

Will his appetite be as fierce,

His passions as strong?

So many questions

Waiting to be answered

In book 2 of THE DEAD GAME.

THE PERFECT HUE

Indigo

beneath the sea floor

 

 

THE PERFECT HUE

 

The road extends to the sea,

where creatures can roam free.

Blue tinges the sky and flowers,

an indigo of dark powers.

The town lies ahead,

where I’ll lay my head.

Dreams will take me away

to a place with no gray.

Only bright colors for my day

in this new place, I want to stay.

Fear not the witches in the night,

but enjoy each day as you might.

An Oasis waits now for you,

a rainbow in a perfect hue.

BEYOND THE GATE

Source:

 

A gate in the woods,

Majestic between the trees.

A doorway asks to be crossed.

A force pulls me to the other side.

Cold air tingles on my bare skin.

Grass crunches beneath my feet.

Sounds are magnified.

New smells stream through my nostrils.

I feel alive.

I feel strong.

I feel empowered.

I walk to meet The Dead.

I sense their presence.

The night brings them.

I will face them.

They will rule no more.
