LIGHTS FLICKER

 

 

 

Lights flicker non-stop,

Bodies block my way.

Darkness shows the truth

Never seen by day.

 

Horror clogs my throat,

A weak cry creeps out.

“How did I get here?”

I run as I shout.

 

Arms reach for me.

They want me to stay.

I refuse to join

the games The Dead play.

THE SEARCH

THE SEARCH

In the quiet summer night,

Light shining from a great height,

A search until morning light.

We hold strong with all our might

That we find what we’re searching for,

Before night ends and shuts the door.

We need to find her before it’s too late.

We refuse to leave this up to mere fate.

A shout, a cry is heard in the dark.

It must be her alone in the park.

The light shines on her pretty face.

She sees us and picks up her pace.

She is crying and laughing at the same time.

A perfect ending to this story of mine.

In the quiet summer night,
Light shining from a great height,
Searching until morning light.
We hold strong with all our might
That we find what we’re searching for,
Before night ends and shuts its door.
We need to find her before it’s too late.
We refuse to leave this up to mere fate.
A shout, a cry is heard in the dark.
It must be her alone in the park.
The light shines on her pretty face.
She sees us and picks up her pace.
She is crying and laughing at the same time.
A perfect ending to this story of mine.

DANCE FOR ME

DANCE FOR ME

Elevate your body through the air.
Lift up your fins.
Your pointy face to the sky.
Dance for me.

Let the water flow down.
Back into the ocean.
But keep yourself high above all else.
Dance for me.

Give me your wicked smile.
A little laugh.
Show me your endless joy.
Dance for me.

I want to see your special dance.
A clap or two.
A little twist for me.
Dance for me.

When I receive a 5 Star Review, I want to shout from the rooftops, “Hey! Someone enjoyed my book!”
That’s what I’m doing right now.
Thank you Astrid Grant for your kind words.

MY FIVE STAR REVIEW ON AMAZON:

 

5.0 out of 5 stars “The Big Bad Wolf is already waiting for us…”, June 25, 2014
This review is from: The Dead Game (Kindle Edition)
I cannot say how glad I am that I got the opportunity to read this book. This story puts me in mind of the horror classics – it has a little bit of everything: gore, eeriness, a nice array of shrinking violet heroines and a few tough broads, a bit of romance and plenty of twists (why, Natalia, why?)!
One of the things that I absolutely loved about this book was that it jumped into action right from the first page, and didn’t let up right until the end.
Another thing that I loved is this author’s style – the scenes were beautifully descriptive, stylish, and at times, quite gruesome (I’ll have nightmares about the fireplace for some time). They were also crafted in such a way that it was easy to envision every terror, almost as if it were a film.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to any fan of good, classic horror – whether you’re into vampires, demons, or just like some gruesome nighttime reading.
