DANCE WITH ME

Dance with me until the moon hides its face,

and the sun attempts to quicken the pace.

From the sunlight, vampires turn their face,

And dancers twirl to the light’s frenzied pace.

MY HEART’S SONG

Darkness brings a pall to town.

I turn around with a frown.

Soft footsteps echo on the street,

I know whom I’m destined to meet.

I should have listened to my heart’s song,

Listened to reason and right from wrong.

THE DEAD GAME SERIES

OUR SPECIAL PLACE

When the music plays,

and your body sways,

let my arms hold you,

and my body spoons you.

We’ll sashay to our own beat

and let the town fall at our feet.

As the demons fall from grace,

this remains our special place.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

Will We Fall Prey to The Dead?

Brutal winds follow close on my heels,
Thunder and lightning joining the crusade.
Fluorescent lights paint the night sky,
Rings of orange, yellow, and red.


A vortex of horror in unending circles
Makes its way to the small town of Oasis,
Where I will be waiting with a sword in hand,
Secure in the knowledge Wolf won’t win.


The Watchers have joined the battle.
They stand on the hill beyond,
Their raincoats flapping in the wind,
Concealing their cache of weapons.

We will protect Linda from the devil,
An army standing strong against the harsh winds.
The Father clutches his bible of spells,
Ready to cast the evil from our town.

We have come together as one,
Humans, vampires, and human vampires.
The last battle on this earthly planet,
Which will determine our combined fate.

Linda clings to her friends,
Huddled together in the storm.
Will she choose wisely and correctly?
Will she choose me above The Dead?

The time has come for the showdown.
Time has slowed to a halt.
We raise our weapons above our heads,
Waiting for evil to make its final appearance.

Wolf has been given a new body,
But I recognize his deadly soul.
A new package for an old one
Does not change the battle to be won.

Our games have just begun.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

CAN LUCK SAVE US?

Can luck save the residents of Oasis
from rogue vampires desperate for blood?
Time will tell.

A GOODBYE KISS

My love has gone astray.

I don’t believe I can stay.

As moans fill the night air,

I must depart his snare.

He gives me a goodbye kiss,

then he’s gone with a hiss.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

THE SKY IS UNDER ATTACK

The sky is under attack

from demons rising below.

The sun shines no more,

hidden behind the moon’s glow.

Linda is determined to fight

and save her beloved town.

THE DEAD GAME SERIES

WELCOME TO OUR WORLD

Welcome to our world.

Our haven from light.

A world of darkness.

We’re hidden from sight.

Dance with us tonight.

Come with us and play.

Music soothes the soul.

Dawn won’t have its say.

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM

Tourists stroll the beaches.

Shouts of joy flow from the Oasis Hotel

as guests frolic in the swimming pools.

You might think this is a paradise but take care.

Never trust the calm before the storm.

ESCAPE THE SNOWSTORM

The Dead walk the bitter cold.

Florida nights have lost their charm.

Wolf may be centuries old,

But he will never do me harm.
