CRIMSON



Shades of red fall from the sky,
Puddles of crimson from high.
I’m covered by the bloody hue.
I refuse to stay here with you.

Time travel has brought us here.
I refuse to live in fear.
A fake town is not for me.
Why can’t you let me be free?

Demons hide in this forsaken place.
Don’t bother to show me your true face.
I know what you really are.
From here, I want to be far.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

Wishes from The Dead Game Series


Happy Mother’s Day
from THE DEAD GAME SERIES
and Susanne Leist
A bloody sweet day
where your wishes
and fantasies
come true.

IN THE RED SKY




A sliver in the red sky
Sparkling in its own right.
Higher than the birds can fly,
Stars bow to its greater might.

A PERFECT OASIS




A perfect oasis where dreams come true.
Palm trees wave their arms in the warm breeze.
Birds sing a happy tune above the blue.
Until the night exhales its cold breath.
Torrents of wind dig through the white sand.
Where dark shadows leave no footprints.
And tourists remain innocent no more.

TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT

Source:


Take the night to the limit.
The road to its end.
The sun to its setting.
Life to its climax.
Leaving no stone unturned.
No drama left undone.
No sentence left unsaid.
Take the night to the limit.

A MOTHER'S DAY WISH

The Dead wish you A


Happy Mother’s Day

COLORS ON MY MIND

COLORS ON MY MIND
Picture a flower growing from the sea.
Can there be a prettier sight to see?
Flower bubbles float ashore.
Who do you think they are for?
This is what I need for today.
Pastel colors to soothe my stay.
Pinks and blues mix well together.
I can look at them forever.

UNTIL THE NIGHT



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.

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.

TIME STANDS STILL

Source:


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.

TRAPPED


Source:

TRAPPED

Trapped inside me.
Trapped in my insecurities.
Can I break free?
It will be painful.
I break the glass walls.
I can do it.
I will do it.
Goodbye to doubters.
Hello to the new me.

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.
