Every Night is Halloween

Every night is Halloween
When ghastly ghost hovers near
I toss and turn in my dream
For I know the fiend I fear

Goblins and ghouls have no chance
I scare them all back to hell
Yet, one thing is viler still
I know its evil full well

Every night I shut the door
I shake while I lay in bed
For soon the door is ajar
A form hovers by my head

A eerie glow fills the room
Familiar breath on my face
Fingers slide over my lips
Unseen hands my body trace

Every night your ghost appears
You, who to my heart are DEAD
You come not as fearsome ghoul
But as angel to my bed

Your lies now you whisper sweet
“I am moved by love not lust!”
Yet I feel your groping hands
Stroking away broken trust

My bed is aflame with heat
You tricked, now you want a treat
I know your wishes full well
To bring to life passion sweet

I tremble in morbid fear
For you have come to possess
I buried your cheating heart
But ghost fingers now caress

You linger over my form
Your presence so very real
The night moves in ghostly charm
Every touch and kiss I feel

Morning light breaks through the night
I awake alone and bare
Halloween, my every night
Your scent lingers in the air.

    I concur with Andrea on this. Devilishly seductive, yet that sense of incompletion remained. Awesome.

    To bad, I think it would be at the top of the leader board. As Jack would put it, "if it is not at the top of the list there should be an investigation."

    Richard, your commendation and praise will do. No, i will not enter this into a contest. I will just let it stand on its own for various reasons, but thanks for the vote of confidence. It does me worlds of good! :)

    this is eerie but strangely erotic!! I like it for being different from the general Halloween poem. Unique!

    Unique will do my heart worlds of good, Andrea. Great that it isn't another run of the mill Halloween poem. I appreciate your comment!

    Dear Mr Seal, sage advice this! No, they don't come by that often indeed. Thanks for your visit to my work. Desert Orchid has been watered by your kind remarks. :)

    My dear, Eileen, I do not worry for you, it is for them that I worry, you have scared the hell out of them! Poor ghosts, goblins, and disembodied spirits I feel so sorry for you!

    I don't believe in Halloween or ghosts, goblins, and disembodied spirits. These are nothing but Satan's angels impersonating loved ones to fool people into believing the immortality of the soul. There is no present hell or purgatory. Hell is yet to come. This is what I believe. Forgive me. It doesn't sit well with me to read or comment on Halloween! I decided, instead, to take a different take on this theme- being haunted by the spirit of a love that has died...trying to forget and move on!
