The Door Creaks Open

   It was All Saints Eve, Halloween,
   And from my window I watched;
Children dressed in various disguises,
   Trick or treating to each house,
    Where Jack-o-lanterns shined;
                      On All Halloween Eve.

   Inside my house candles flickered,
   The corners filled with shadows;
And on an ornate table an Ouija board,
   Waited for my guests to settle,
   It was time to open the door;
                       On All Halloween Even.

   With our hands on the planchette,
   We asked the spirits that dwelled;
To show us a sign, perhaps a presence,
   A long silence was thick and eerie,
   Candles blew out and a door creaked;
                         On All Halloween Even.

   We heard a man's harsh whisper,
   I could feel his breath on my cheek;
As though he was leaning over me,
   All of us were frozen in cold fear,
   As footsteps on wood echoed away;
                           On All Halloween Even.

   It was that very night alone in my bed,
   That I felt my covers being pulled away;
And I had an odd feeling that I was not alone,
   I heard his laughter hanging over me,
    Then I was screaming and screaming;
                            On All Halloween Even.
