A FALL DAY

A beautiful fall day.
A pebbled path through the red.
Charcoal steps leading up.
Fantasies flow through my head.
The leaves lift off
Until the day turns dark.
I’m trapped inside
A red swirl in the park.
The rain trickles.
The wind cackles.
I flee for...

 

A beautiful fall day.

A pebbled path through the red.

Charcoal steps leading up.

Fantasies flow through my head.

 

The leaves lift off

Until the day turns dark.

I’m trapped inside

A red swirl in the park.

 

The rain trickles.

The wind cackles.

I flee for safety

On raised hackles.

 

The path is gone.

Night has come too soon.

The path is gone.

Lost in the full moon.

 

BLOOD

My fingers touch my face.
They glisten crimson
in the fading light.
Red drops hit the ground
from my moist lips.
I feel parched.
A thirst I’ve never felt before.
I look around at the fallen bodies.
Throats ripped open.
Sightless eyes open.
I’ve...

My fingers touch my face.

They glisten crimson

in the fading light.

Red drops hit the ground

from my moist lips.

I feel parched.

A thirst I’ve never felt before.

I look around at the fallen bodies.

Throats ripped open.

Sightless eyes open.

I’ve become one of them.

RED FLOWS

 

Red flows freely.

From the ocean.

Through the town.

Into windows.

Up the stairs.

Into your beds.

It sucks dry.

The innocent.

The sleeping.

It takes all.

For its own.

For its army.

An army from hell.

A CHARGED NIGHT

 

A sizzle lights up the night sky.

Followed by thunder up so high.

The black clouds rumble in dismay.

Crumbling like figures of clay.

Red soon joins the purple light.

Gearing up for a loud fight.

The sea’s quiet below.

Keeping its head down low.

We’re in for a charged night.

As The Dead come to fight.

BLOOD RED

 

BLOOD RED

The wavering reflections of the red sky

mar the blue surface of the ocean.

The sun sets for the night,

hiding its face behind puffy clouds.

The sky reaches into its bag of tricks,

bringing out a yellow moon.

The water remains blood red

as the sky turns inky black.

A reflection from its depths

of the evil creatures rising.

Onto our crisp white shores they walk,

Leaving bloody footprints in the sand.

RED RED ROSE

 

I stand alone.

In armies of red.

To face the night.

While others are dead.

Come no closer.

Fear my open face.

Stay away from here.

But they quicken their pace.

Tomorrow will be here soon.

l am all that is left.

Bow your heads in prayer.

Thank the gods for the test.

A BLANKET OF RED

Nordic landscape

A blanket of red

covers the landscape.

Fragrant and soft

as it protects and serves.

A place of comfort

and a place to sleep.

A keeper of memories

of the lost tower.

What was once a stronghold

is now a carpet of beauty.
