Peace of Mind



Never again will he feel the warmth of the light -


or the comfort of sin.


Never again will he fear the night;


For he won't be coming back this way again.

Magic


"Books?" he said suddenly...

Mr. Marvel started and looked at them.  "Oh, yes," he said.  "Yes, they're books."

"There's some extraordinary things in books," said the mariner.

"I believe you," said Mr. Marvel.

"And some extraordinary things out of 'em," said the mariner.

In Secrecy


"She was like the moon - 
part of her was always hidden away."
~Dia Reeves


Maybe it wasn't just hidden;
Maybe the other side of her was already promised to the night.
Perhaps it was a bargain made long ago; 
Before her time; 
Before the lies. 
Sometimes, there is nothing you can do but comply.

Geoglyphs

Some secret ancient message?

An alien encryption?

A sheer coincidence?

Bring to me the haunted;

the ones whose cannot find their way out of the darkness.

Bring to me the taunted;
the twisted;
the ones whose souls have forgotten them.

Come.
Walk with me for a while -
And you will see that we're all the same here -

We're delicious;
And devious;
And destined for greater things.

Off the Path

Sometimes, off of the beaten path,
You find those who you didn't even realize you were searching for;
You find those who are more like you than anyone else you've ever met.
Once in a while, in this strange unpredictable world... you find your way.

Be yourself.
Be different.
Be well.

Thanks for following our darkness, Creepsters.

Only a Dream?

Remember when you were little,
Just bite size?
Can you remember lying in your bed at night, restless and imaginative?
Hoping that sleep would come for you before the Boogeyman?

Can you remember the shadows?
Maybe they were hanging from the light?
Creeping through the hallway?
Hiding in the closet?

Do you remember the fear?
The tightness in your chest?
Trying to catch your breath before they caught you?
Squeezing your eyes shut to block out the darkness?

Did you panic?
Pray?
Piss yourself?

Since then, have you filed all that nonsense away?
Flooded those thoughts with worry and work?
Did you replace that imagination with responsibility?
Did you swap that magic for money?
Those dreams for nightmares?


Who's crazy now?

Maybe it's you?
Maybe it's still me.

It's Never Over


Silence abounds throughout these walls.
The Halloween countdown has been reset.
A tear slides down my cheek.

Anyone else feel the sadness?

Do not fret, Creepsters,
Because Night Lights Cast Shadows, made a commitment to the darkness long ago. 
And we don't quit the dark-side just because it isn't October anymore.
We actually embrace it a bit more.

So, hang out with us for all the latest nightmares;
the creepiest of images;
the most sinister debates.

We celebrate the macabre all year 'round.

Creep with us ~

Happy Haunting


This is the time of year 
When the light fades a little quicker -
When the night breathes a little deeper -
When the screams echo a little louder -

'Tis Halloween, my Creepsters.
'Tis Halloween.

Oh, and one last thing.....

Pumpkin Prize

***Update***
We have a winner!
And this contest is officially closed.


I do not recommend smashing pumpkins this Halloween season, for they are a treasured item.
However, the Smashing Pumpkins music is allowed and actually preferred this time of year.
I'm assuming that's what all the ghouls are listening to right now.
:)


That is why we are giving away this Smashing Pumpkins collection:


Zeitgeist is a CD and DVD combo* and
It goes to the first Creepster to guess which of their songs the following lyric comes from...


The world is a vampire.


Please leave your name and answer below.

Forfeit


If I stood a chance of surviving the night,
I would go to you and I would never leave your side.
But I am afraid I'll bring the evil with me.
And I would never forgive myself -
How could I?
If I tainted your world with my darkness?

So, I will be gone from you.
Far gone and far away.
And yes, I must leave you with a scar,
And have you hate my soul for all eternity.
Because you see,
You are all goodness.
You radiate the light,
And you will save so many,
And I must keep you burning bright.
I must...
I must keep you burning bright.

Make It Rain

A shout out to my Creepsters ~

Here at Night Lights Cast Shadows, we discuss many topics.
We debate the unknown and we imagine the what-ifs of other worlds.
We discover our fears and lay them out for dissection.
We cover the creepy and we investigate the scary.

But there is nothing more frightening than cancer.
And, unfortunately, it affects all of our lives in some way.

My sister is fighting the battle and she is kicking it in the ass.
She has teamed up with The American Cancer Society and is fundraising for an event.
I am sending out this post to anyone who would like to support her and the fight.
Even if you want to donate $5, do it.  It all adds up and every donation helps.
Here is the link:  Making Strides
           
So, let's make it rain over there, Creepsters.
Rain money.
Rain so hard that this thing called cancer won't be able to rear its ugly head.
Because this is one horror we can do without.

Thank you for listening~
And thank you for donating ~

I woke with a start,

when everything is colourless and clear cut,

Mirrors

The moon chases me down,
Ripping my blanket of security from me.
It holds me down to drink the rain;
To guzzle its nectar and feed its pain.

Among this sleepy nightmare, I hold my breath and wait.
Wait for the dawn to wake me;
For the light to cleanse me;
For reality to wash it all away.

Or is it the dream I wake up to?
A short break from the insanity,
Only to return to the darkness of time?

Stranded

Nightmare #109

I often think back to that day and wonder how things could have been different.  I remember the blue skies of the morning, the warmth of the September sun, and the cool breeze that flowed through the valley and into my car window to play with my hair.
It was perfect weather.  
It was the perfect day.

And what if I had made the slightest change that morning?
Maybe took the time to apply some eye shadow?
Maybe paused in front of the mirror just a second or two longer?
Perhaps if I had went back into the house for my earrings?
But, no, I was already running late.

What if I hadn't pushed that snooze button?
But got right up the very minute Katy Perry sang to me?
What if I had taken the time to pray?
To leave a note?
To send one last text?

Now, all I can do is replay all the what ifs and should haves and the maybes.
Going over and over in my mind how cruel time can be;
How being a minute earlier or just another second later would've erased me from that accident;
Would've removed me from that wreckage;
Spared me from this cold metal slab.

And now, I wander back and forth ~ stuck in this coffin of time ~ 
Aimlessly waiting for direction;
Wanting to go back but unable;
Trying to move forward but denied.

"If this girl can give a soul to those who have lived without one, 
if she can create the sense of beauty in people whose lives have been sordid and ugly, 
if she can strip them of their selfishness 
and lend them the tears for sorrows that are not their own, 
she is worthy of all your adoration, 
worthy of the adoration of the world."
