CONSUMED BY THE SEA

It is here.

A force to be reckoned.

It grows by the second,

thrashing under the bridge,

leaving death in its wake.

Leave me be.

My dying wish isn’t

to be consumed by the sea.

MIDNIGHT STRIKES DOOM

 

 

Welcome to our castle.

Not to be a hassle.

But please knock on the door.

It will open once more.

Step inside, join our party.

Come and eat long and hearty.

Until midnight strikes doom on the head.

You’ll be gone except for The Dead.

 

THE DEAD GAME by Susanne Leist

A TRUE HEAVEN OF SWEETS

 

Take me to the room

where books line the walls.

Globes stand at attention.

Ladders wait to be climbed.

Cushioned chairs for reading.

Tables set for writing.

Let’s climb to the stacks,

and see what we may find.

Romance today for thee,

perhaps a mystery for me.

A confectioner’s treat,

true heaven of sweets.
