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 threw words at him that hit 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!
