Bitter by ; being mentally bruised and battered most of my life,
shaken with fright without a single soul to help me
through the troubles unseen horrors of the night,
from an evil source that I fear to strike.
But as the evil forces, who limited my choices
that when I found my stallion horses.
Swiftly it came to my head I can run and I cannot hide,
feeling the Beast closing in on every time I decide to hide.
Tired of running and tired of alluding this
relentless creep as my red bolt eyes weep
feeling rest-less, likes a lonely defeated warrior from his home in retreat
that is when I knew it time to rest, to release my Beast.
But in a fight, I may not win however as I cast out my dirty words sin
I made sure it felt my impact, to the bloody end.

It was a home on the river we lived .
It was the ghost of a young man whom had taken his own life.
I still remember the vision of him walking by me with a blank stare
We, as a Family of seven , moved into this river house
Panoramic views right out to the river , I should mention
I was home alone as a child , looking out at "The Julia Belle Swan " as she went by .
Upstairs in that room as I saw a figure walking by , with very nice features , auburn hair
I thought he was my older brother , a handsome young guy
Then I realized the young man was not my brother , a apparition he appeared .
He was not there to scare or frighten ,
the message I believe he wanted to shed light on, so clear.
He walked right by ,then disappeared through the window, out to the River .
The Ghost knew I could see him , a gift I have been given
when I was a younger child of five , I had once died for a short time. I was lifted by Jesus in Heaven . Death is not for us to decide .
Later in the years we moved from that home , every home we lived in had a story
or a presence of its own . My Mother had told me later , a young man took his life there .
Keep fighting your way through life and its despair ,
you are important to someone whom cares . If you feel alone and want life to end , Please pick up the phone , call anyone , call for help , call a Friend .
"This is not fiction , it truly is a gift I have been given "
Dramatic Verse (Verse Drama)
It was a moment in time
a fate of inspiration gifted
I believe I was lifted a destiny in writing
I would vibrantly pursue .
Renting a cottage once in Monterey Bay
this cottage special in some way
The very minute moving.. I felt a presence
giving me no serenity , no rest
feeling I were a quest ~
After desiring this home so
telling the Realtor ~ I made a mistake
She told me be calm ~
many have said this before you
~ this haunt was not a new
For once lived a Writer ~well respected Gent
His cottage a distillery during the time of prohibition.
Many Gents and Ladies came to this cottage
unlawfully gamble & drink through the night
Who would think , Doc Ricketts in Cane & Hat
it was a party by moon light ~
In the back a distillery hidden in a old shed
many Alcoholics were fed ~
The ghost popular quite the Ladies man ~
I was honored while feeling displaced
For those who have not read my poems
~ and this may be new.
This really happened ~

Beautiful lies known as little white lies
yet one is no more deceptive than each
The truth is what makes it afraid of light
It's important we practice what we preach
Imagination built on lies destroy
Imagination built on truth create
Conquering evil we try to avoid
Tooth fairy, Halloween, Santa abate
Perceptions and images make it real
Origins of Pagan rituals true
We've wandered down this path for a bum deal
Now more lies are created all brand new
The mask behind a beautiful white lie
is the truth with a constant shield, but why?
People of my realm,
the dragon realm
But with a Leme spot
The honor to the
His tongue fire and
For your fortune is
You shall let die
and be spared
No generation shall
come to pass
The earth realm, I
Another sweet dragon
shines all through
Unto you shall be my
I will then reward
with piercing mercy
Beware! Is the
goddess you serve?
On Halloween Night
by Genevieve Stevens
Winds a-blowing all around-
So dark I cannot see,
A figure, hush - don’t make a sound-
That reflection can’t be me!
The moon is rising to full extent-
Heart pounding with poignant glee,
A glorious night for this grand event-
My victims come to me!
Brain a-whirling, twirling fast-
Timing is such a key,
Almost there, heart please do last-
A feast awaits for me!
Through glowing amber eyes, I spy-
Perfect prey to be,
I can’t help but give a sigh-
Come, little morsels, to me!
A raven’s form I’ve taken on-
Upon the branch of a barren tree,
Watching them play on a graveyard lawn-
Soon a drinking spree for me!
All together, what a sight-
Laughing, not thinking to flee,
Tipping headstones on Halloween night-
Never sensing the danger in me!
I can taste the blood, can hardly wait-
Poor souls, they can’t foresee,
Lightning fast, they’ll meet their fate-
Upon their necks, I’ll be!
Ah-h-h-, quenched my thirst for another year-
Til I rise from my coffin free,
On All Hallows’ Eve night you should walk in fear-
“Cause you, my next victim, might be!”
Val, The Valiant Little Witch
by Genevieve Stevens
for my pretty, independent daughter, Valerie
Val was graduating from school,
Her grade point average was good-
Halloween night was her big debut,
A difference she’d make, if she could!
She liked to study and read her books,
Straight “A’s” and nothing less-
The teachers bragged about her good looks,
And how her grades were always the best-
It did not matter what the class,
Broom flying, charms, chants and more-
She learned everything so lightening fast.
They sensed much promise in store-
The little witch enchanted them,
A bit of evil lurked surely inside-
She twirled and whirled and held a slight grin,
Knowing she had something to hide-
The final exam was about to take place,
Little Val was kind of afraid-
Her clothes were laid out at home, so she raced,
Then “goodbye” to her parents she bade.
She opened the door and went on her way,
A million things raced through her mind-
She had to think straight - for this wasn’t play,
Her secret, she hoped they’d not find-
Oh my, she thought as she returned to her class,
“I hope they don’t see me crying-
I pretend to be mean and I can harass,
But the inside of me is just sighing-“
“Okay” said the teacher, Let’s hit the town,
To show what each of you’ve learned-
Please, witches beware, if you can’t cast a spell,
Your diplomas you’ll have to return-“
So carefully, the class walked on out,
The administrators right by their sides-
Little Val, she wanted to shout,
But for now she’d have to abide-
The moon was full and shining bright,
The sidewalks busy with no place bare-
All-Hallowed-Eve’s night had perfect light,
And at all of them, not a soul stared-
There was chitter-chatter all around,
Costumes abound on this night-
Val breathed in deeply, not making a sound,
It was time to make things right!
The little witch was conniving, it’s true,
Now her powers were about to be tried-
She had learned many things in Hogwarts School,
Like, spells should never be misapplied!
“HALT,” said Val in a voice loud and clear,
“I have something that I must announce,
and it applies to everyone here,
THIS WITCHCRAFT YOU HAVE TO RENOUNCE!”
Little witch Val knew she had to work fast,
And began quickly making her brew-
“From this day forward until your last,
Only good things can come from you!“
The teachers were stunned and so were her friends,
Val was really quite clever and smart-
The real truth was, she managed to cleanse,
All the meanness right out of their hearts!
