BY THE SEA

Come with me to the pool by the sea.
Oasis is the best place to be.
Relax by the pool or sit at the bar.
Tourists visit this place from near and far.


I think I’ll take a dip in the pool.
I am definitely not a fool.
I’d never pass up a chance for fun
Or a tan in the Florida sun.


Wait. Come and look over here.
I found a book on the chair.
A small town is a beautiful place.
I see the stunned look on your face.


Oasis Hotel resembles this one.
But it isn’t always fun in the sun.
It is a haven for The Dead.
Is the heat going to your head?


The sky is turning cloudy and dark.
I can see shadows over the park.
What’s that standing behind you?
It’s not one shadow but two.


More shadows are coming ashore.
I’m not going to wait for more.
Our destiny seems to be in this book.
I’m leaving now without a second look.

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

PLAY THE DEADLY GAME

Tourists disappear

in the humid air.

The night hides their cries

as they’re gone before our eyes.

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.

SILENCE REIGNS SUPREME

Silence reigns supreme.

The sun hides its face.

Palm trees shake their leaves.

Winds quicken their pace.

The hotel stands deserted.

Flapping sounds fill the air.

Dark shadows join the fray

beneath his icy stare.

DEATH I CANNOT BEAR

Stay away from here.

Death I cannot bear.

I’m telling a horror tale

with each wag of my fine tail.

Tourists disappear into the thin air.

One day they are right here.

The next day they’re nowhere.

THE DEAD GAME

WALK IN THE SUNLIGHT

Oasis vampires own the night.
Now they can walk in the sunlight.
Among the tourists, they frolic
in scenery that’s bucolic.
Don’t turn your head,
one might be in your bed.

RUN LIKE THE WIND

Run as the lounge chairs sail through the air.

Run as if death follows at your heels.

Run until you can’t anymore.

Run or this town will fall.

DARK FOE

Demons invade our place.

They snatch tourists for their base.

Who will save us from this dark foe?

I hope it’s not the one I love so.

LIGHT MY FIRE

He lights my fire
to take me higher.

The town’s on fire,
set by the sire.

He comes tonight
for the big fight.

He comes for me
from the dark sea.
