The Bell House Tower

We seen a dim light upon top of the Bell House Tower
a dark shadow slipped by it in the midnight hour.

What was that? I asked my friend, I don't know
she said, but it looked like something that's met
it's end.

The wind was blowing with such a strange howling
and all the city lights were off making it dark for
mysterious prowling.

A loud, maddening laughter rang through the air and
stood on our arms, every one of our hairs. We ran like
crazy down the ally way and never looked back until
the light of day.

The next morning a crowd had gathered at the Bell House
Tower and every one was shocked to see it was the bell
ringer who rung the bell, hour upon hour.

Not a sign made anyone sure of what happened, but we know
what we heard in the midnight hour, mad laughter from upon
top the Bell House Tower.

Whistling Past A Graveyard

whistling past a graveyard Devil may care, but I have no regard I walk among granite tombstones six feet below are boxes full of bones I find myself in a dark, dark room only to realize it's a witch's tomb gravedigger has bodies to retrieve on this night, Saint Hollow's Eve

Details | Sonnet |



Be quiet now, the full moon scrapes the hour
when evil ghouls crawl on bleak streets, unknown 
a gruesome feast they thirst to devour 
the carnage of the living, down the bone.
As midnight howls, dare not open the gates
shadows can transform into bloody paws;
to unplug the light, a rampage awaits
the wailing screech of flesh drilled by chainsaws.
From graveyards of old, more corpses arise
with maggots on tongue gnawing spoiled debris,
and hissing winds darken the view; be wise
since terror reeks a plague like a red sea.

It's witching time; beware of fright undone
Pray... I'm one of them watching you, so RUN!

Scary Moments

Something’s lurking in the shadows. Something’s hiding in the dark.
Something’s out there by my window, so why doesn’t Fido bark?
Something out there wants to get me! I am losing my sang-froid.
Something wants to disappear me. I’m not being paranoid!
I used to have a neighbor woman--We cannot find her anywhere.
When I called for some patrolmen.  They did not show ‘cause they don’t dare!
Something outside isn’t human-- or at least not anymore.
A cannibal or psycho axeman, or just a clown covered with gore.

I’ve got the willies something fierce. Those shivers just won’t go away.
I’m not ready for the hearse. Too scared to run…too scared to stay.
Someone’s walked over my tomb, or given me the evil eye.
Something’s out there in costume--Trick or treat, it’s time to die!

Something’s out there by my window, so why doesn’t Fido bark?
Something’s lurking in the shadows.  Something’s waiting in the dark.

On Halloween night

Alone  I sat waiting for the it  to  come  it  never  did
My heart  began  pumping as my neck  began  to sweat that  cold dark  night,
Petrified and  unable to move even the smallest  of muscles to make movement.
I  heard a  creaking  in the  floor below me, I lay still with fear and this  feeling  its not Ok.
Knowing now my  only option was to run and release myself from this horrifying place called sleep,
Trying so hard with much effort  I swiftly swing my feet  over the  bed still stiff and terrified ,
 I let  out a scream deep  from my  vocal chords as something grabbed  my ankles I froze,
eventually gaining strength I shook free on my hands and knees  I went down  hard to  the floor.
Questioning  what has brought me here to this awful  place?
As I crept towards the  door in the  doorway a man  in a dark suite cocky  smile points at  me  with his devilish eyes and leaves me with  a hurt in my body of sickness to come and drained of all life as he grabs my throat  holds me  up  close and whispers

On Halloween Night

From depths of Hell I hear them cry
And close my eyes as they float by.
They chill my bones I don’t know why
And think it’s now my time to die,
As my face turns green.
Some of them they hold their head
It seems they don’t know that they’re dead.
I feel so frightened in my bed,
Each time it’s Halloween.

The stench of Zombies in the streets,
Vampires sucking blood just for treats,
The Rippers head bows as he greets,
All these things they give me the creeps
And make my face turn green.
Dracula, his hair slick he grooms,
As Witches fly on crooked brooms.
In shadows hide ghost’s fresh from tombs
Each time it’s Halloween.

Goblins make such horrible sounds,
Their screeches heard all over town.
Tombstones they rise up from the ground,
There’s no relief from grief I found,
That makes my face turn green.
Frightening scenes in neighbour’s yard,
Dripping black bones from Christians tarred,
I pray that Angels will me guard
Each time it’s Halloween.

On Halloween Night

           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!”

Wishing Witch

            Wishing Witch 

My Halloween screenplay is funny as can be
It’s funny how witchcraft is what we need to see

Brewing up trouble with all your classmates
The teacher will get angry, make no mistake

Crazy riddles from a child can be so scary
Being her classmate leaves you feeling wary
You may start a princess and end as a boar
As her riddles will leave you in an uproar

Will you return to normal after all this nonsense
Is the question that has everyone in suspense

You may not have believed in the paranormal
But you will start to see the proof is abysmal 

Trick-or-treating can be more than a trick
As Jenny needs to get out of this fix

Laughter that gets you jumping off your seat
This screenplay is hilarious, that  you’ll see

So if you’re looking for some trouble
To get you out of your bubble
Go to the site, quick and on the double

On Halloween Night

We approach the house, to trick-or-treat, but wonder if we dare
The porch is dark, no light or spark, to help us find the way
We peek inside, ........does the old man hide?  We see no one is there
But, we rang the bell, and wait a spell, the door begins to sway

Through the crack, pursued, a room is bare with unclad shades of gray
Arthritic winds have tossed us in, with a wretched dismal hand
The trees bend low, against the house with solemn loathing dread
With branches, brisk, it rattles glass, against the window pane

We look around the cheerless room,  a terrible scent of wrong
An angled light has slithered in, with shadows deep and long
and spotlights what's become of him, the man who isn't there...
with a room unkempt, some muffled steps, and as if a ghost might stare
Four vinyl seats, Formica clad, a room that needs repair
The table set, a plate of food, is rotting by the chair
A cup of cold, a cigarette, still smoking in the air
The room depicts, what might have been, but reeks with wrought despair

A parakeet within a cage has mocked us once again
The voice is shrill, it squawks with rage, 'Unlock me if you dare!'
The floor is strewn with littered seed, where mice have shared the spill
All time has stopped, in ash and dust, the hours couldn't care.......

We take a breath, too scared to move, for we are not alone
For company, a skeleton, sits beside the sofa's edge 
against the wall, it smiles at us beneath the window ledge
No eyes to stare, yet seems if a joke is played

Inaudible, just barely heard, the wind begins to howl
Or is it we, who scream to be back home in Mommy's arms
Outside the house, we hear an owl, and we begin to run
into the night, into the light, without a bit of fun!
No Snicker Bars, no Tootsie Pops, no candy corn or Mars
A trick on us, no treat it was......we've lost our appetite!!

On Halloween

On Halloween night, do you dare go out into the full moon light?
Zombies and scary creatures are out there with their terrible sighs
your mind will be filled with such horrid delight, while witches on
their broomsticks will go flying by.

Darkness will be upon the street where you and others live
all Hallow's Eve is full of freight and always gives such a shiver
everyone at their door, tricks or treats they do and shall give
and spooky laughter in a dark... dark room, they also shall deliver.
Masked faces and ghost every where you look, never
know if it is real or just a Halloween costumed look.
Your heart will beat wildly with such a loud chatter
and every time someone screams, all your friends will 
On Halloween night stay close to your friends real tight
and do not forget to bring you a flashlight, for you may end up
in a dark and haunted graveyard before the end of the night.
Werewolves and vampires they all do live in there and
always walk with caution, and care or you may fall deep
into their lair.
