EVIL TWIN

Nomad

 

 

The light beckons to me,

Calls from deep in the sea.

I’m tempted you can see.

I do want to be free.

 

I step inside,

Nowhere to hide.

The walls move in.

It’s dark as sin.

 

A door opens right before me

To a sky as clear as can be.

People walk the streets.

Music throbs and beats.

 

It’s a town that resembles mine

With picturesque streets looking fine.

My friend stops to wave and walks to me.

I turn my gaze to the sand and sea.

 

How can this be?

This town can’t be.

A copy of my town.

I cannot help but frown.

 

As friends join the first,

My mind threatens to burst.

I can’t handle another dream.

It’s not as nice as it may seem.

 

My town has deadly powers buried inside

And now has an evil twin to join its side.

I cannot handle this anymore.

I had more than enough blood and gore.

 

The story continues in book two.

DARK AS SIN

DRIPPING WITH SIN

  1.  

     

    The waves are churning.

    My face is burning.

    What’s coming for me?

    I don’t want to see.

    It rises from the deep

    when all are fast asleep.

    The Dead come ashore.

    For me, they’ve come for.

    There’s nowhere to run or hide.

    I refuse to take their side.

    The Dead will not win.

    They’re dripping with sin.

A WALK IN THE CEMETERY

A walk in the cemetery.

Not the right place to be merry.

Dark shadows creep in

As dark as their sin.

Wings flap around me.

I’m cold as can be.

A brief tap on my shoulder.

I run to the boulder.

“No one is here,”

I say in fear.

But footsteps, I do hear

Echo as they draw near.

“Oh no, they have found me.”

A fresh grave waits for me.
