A Halloween Night

It was Halloween night
A cemetery of fright
Surrounded by fog
That pulled you into its bog.

The moonlight shone
A dull orange tone
Yet way up high 
Stars twinkled in the sky.

It was a night for the dead
When your fears were fed
And dark shadows loomed
As monsters were groomed.

The chilly fall air
Touched my bones without care
Watching dry leaves dance
In a fallen trance.

You could hear ghost moan
With a haunting groan
As goblins giggled
And chains jiggled.

Flying bats shrieked
As old doors creaked
And witches flew
As cold winds blew.

Pumpkins grinned bright
With a burning light
As dogs growled
While cats prowled.

It was Halloween night
Enclosing me with fright
So I dived into bed
And covered my head.


Out of the ordinary for me--but I wrote this piece while sitting in my car during my lunch
break at 2:30 in the morning.  It was incredibly dark and creepy sitting there in the
vacant parking lot while the rest of the world slept and for some reason these words just
started to haunt me.  Hope you get a thrill out of reading it!

    Well I LOVED it! I am a Halloween nut and you and a few others here are really getting me into the spirit. Didn't you kind of creep yourself out a little alone in the dark there? I can't even think of anything scary when I am alone - but I crave it when I'm not! Did you look behind your shoulder going back to work? ~lol~ Thanks for the great treat. Love, Shar
