Going Halloween Haiku Crazy

Written by: Russell Sivey

Fear, extreme feeling
Carves hollow points within me
I may run away

It hurts to be so
Deeply afraid inside me
Tears roll down my cheeks

May I escape fear
The terror still left inside
Must rid of all pain

Afraid to move on
I seek solace from the hurt
Peace to be free, hope

Hope to find a way
Out of Halloween's darkness
And into light's grace
