In A Dark Room On Halloween

  In A Dark Room On Halloween
        by Genevieve Stevens

Halloween night was near its’ end,
The trick-or-treaters were almost gone,
We ushered away our costumed friends,
“Til tomorrow, we love you, so long!”

I headed upstairs, oh what a night-
We had so much candy to eat,
I didn’t even bother to turn on the light,
I shut the door and went right to sleep-

I awoke to cool breezes blowing over my face,
For a moment I thought I was doomed,
Isn’t that a sign of a ghost? -my heart raced,
I wanted no one but me, in my room-

I tried really hard to go back to sleep,
but my brain was working too fast,
I felt something on my bed bottom creep,
and onto my pillow I clasped-

I thought to myself, it’s all in your head,
Halloween, a dark room, what's there to fear?”
That’s when again, breezes crossed my bed,
I was driven to silence in tears-

I tried not to think, I tried not to wrest,
I thought I’d go out of my mind,
I was absolutely, totally stressed,
I was afraid if I looked, what I’d find-

I didn’t know if this night would end well,
I jumped out of bed to the wall,
I heard a scary loud screeching yell,
As my brother hollered down from the hall-

“Hey, sis – I left my cat in your room,
And the fan on ‘cause it was too warm,
That’s when this witch got onto to her broom,
and flew into him like a storm!

    You have somehow managed your Halloween but I believe your brother did not have the same luck as you. Nice humorous poetry Genevieve. Hugs!
