TAME


Source:headlikeanorange   Please, I want to go outside. No reason for you to hide. The winds bring rain. But they are tame.   I won’t fall or melt If hail were to pelt. I’ll be forever in your debt If you allow me to get wet.   I’m pulling on my chain. You don’t need half a brain To know I’m ready to go free. See what a great pet I can be.   Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

FOLLOW THE LIGHTS


Art by Augusto Peixoto @ IrondoomDesign DEVIANTART   FOLLOW THE LIGHTS   Follow the lights to the house of glass. There will be much splendor in the grass, Lights in the trees as far as the eye could see. A more decadent event there could not be.   Champagne will flow until the wee hours. Come with me and dance among the flowers. This room full of guests gives me a chill. Maybe we should leave, I’ve had my fill.   Stares are following us in the room. They will be upon us all too soon. The guests are not what they appear. Beneath, they are just bones and hair.   THE DEAD GAME Kindle http://amzn.to/1lKvMrP Nook http://bit.ly/1lFdqNj Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

TIME STANDS STILL


Source:travel-story     The island calls to me. It whispers my name. The bridge sighs. It weeps for me. I walk across. It wobbles to and fro. I hold tight to its ropes. One step gives way And then the next. The sides unravel. Time stands still. I fall. Icy water hits my face. The silence surrounds me.   Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

IN YOUR ARMS


    Take me in your arms as your darkness surrounds me. Bring me to the outer limits of your hope and despair. Delight me with your cold depths, waiting in the wetness beyond. Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

UNTIL THE NIGHT


recked © Josh Dela Cruz     UNTIL THE NIGHT   The bushes dance to their own beat. They comfort me as they dip and sway. When the sun wakes, their branches part. And I walk free. Until the night. Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

A GARDEN OF DELIGHT


A garden of delight for me In colors of the deep blue sea. In my mind’s eye, I can see myself falling into thee. In the shade of the plum tree, I’ll wait and you’ll come to me. We’ll fly away to be free To the waves of the dark sea.  Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

SILENCE

Oasis Hotel Pool
    Silence reigns supreme. The sun hides its face. Palm trees shake their leaves. Winds pick up their pace.   The hotel stands deserted. Flapping sounds fill the air. Dark shadows join the fray Beneath his icy stare.   THE DEAD GAME Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

LA SANTA MUERTE


 LA SANTA MUERTE Welcome to the black saint of death. Welcome with my last dying breath. You grant desires and hopeless wishes. In return, we must sleep with the fishes. Sacrifices are your pride and joy. Then you treat us like a broken toy. You stand there with your scythe and crown. And your dark face bears a big frown. We haven’t seen you for many years. Now you are back in our deepest fears.  THE DEAD GAME Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

A PERFECT OASIS


  A PERFECT OASIS   A perfect oasis on the shore.You could not ask for anything more.Sun and surf during the day,But at night there’s hell to pay.  The waves welcome daily swimmers,But at night there are no winners. Afraid to venture out after dark, Residents stay clear of the town park.   One night, a hanging party is had By the dark creatures who are plain bad. Our town is plagued by darkness and woe.We don’t even know who is our foe. THE DEAD GAME SERIES Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

IN THE RED


Source:travel-story     A beautiful fall day. A pebbled path through the red. I’ve come outside to play. Fantasies flow through my head.   The leaves glitter red Until the day turns dark. I’m safe in my bed, A red swirl in the park.   Rain pelts the park. The wind cackles. I flee in the dark On raised hackles.   The path is gone. Night has come too soon. The path is gone. Lost in the full moon.   Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

IN THE PINK


    I gaze at the pink sea so pure, A vision of delight for sure. The sun is setting down, But there’s no reason to frown.   I could see the ocean floor. Look at me I’m out the door. The sun may be gone for the day. The moon will soon be here to play.   Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist

THE DEAD ARE COMING


      THE DEAD ARE COMING The dark woods keeps them hidden. I know that I’m forbidden From walking this way. I must get away.   I hear them moving through the trees. Let me get away from them, please. The footsteps are louder. The moon is now rounder.   The end for me and the town is near. A crystal ball I don’t need to peer. My head bowed and on bended knee. This will still not end well for me.   THE DEAD GAME SERIES Original linkOriginal author: Susanne Leist
