Dreams of Halloween

Like a shadow moving in the darkness…
It is something seldom seen.
A total act of malevolence,
as monsters haunt your dreams…
As the sun goes down 
before tonight’s full Moon. 
A low rolling fog spread
feelings of foreboding and doom.
Ghouls and Goblins...Read More

Thoughts shattered are 
memories fading
Nostalgic is the feeling
Yet they hold us back 
There's an emptiness that 
becomes nothingness
silent yet loud it overwhelms

Breathe in then Breathe out
Let the air feed your 
soul and mind
Allow life's breath to 
fill your empty lungs...Read More

I'm soaking in a nice hot bath,
Ridding myself of the day's aftermath.
Then it begins, a dripping noise,
This house can play tricks like bad little boys.

It seems to be coming from inside the wall,
But it's been checked before and there's no...Read More

Bump In The Night
I heard a bump in the night
My skin is crawling, a fearful fright
Will it claw, will it bite
Can I make it to the light

It must be a ferocious beast
A ghoulish monster at least
He wants me to be his next feast
I'll...Read More

A Trembling Rose!

Such a trembling rose! She has something to hide, 
Feigns her cough hoping Prince will remain by her side, 
Though she loves him, in fact, she is loath to declare, 
Her connection to one with two feet, could...Read More

A bump in the night
A noise heard in the darkness

this new place she lived in creaked and groaned

this place she was hoping to call home

first week of living alone

since the end of her marriage

and the broken heart pain she now carried with her.

She go...Read More

From the cemetery no specters arose
Why the teens then took flight, they did not disclose
What had incurred
Not seen, but heard
Discovered, because of the caws of the crows!

Three ghosts

A Roman, Cavalier, and a Lady in Grey
were all sat in the old Bell Hotel,
the customers round didn't know they were there
but could sense a peculiar smell.
The Centurion spoke first as he put down his pint,
“ I can't say I've...Read More

Haunted House Party

The room was filled with tension, 
An overwhelming sense of unease. 
No one spoke or dared to mention, 
Was this for real, or was it a tease. 
 
The deafening sound of silence, 
Spine tingling cold fills the...Read More

In the land of sleep and dreams
we can enter into a harmonious time
or be in frightening nightmares
leaving us shaking in our bed
wondering what is going on in our head 
In water floating, drowning or swimming
on oceans, seas, rivers or streams
Climbing...Read More

The Profiteer of Dreams
He enters in via the shadows of night
While the world is sound in its sleep
Snatches that which goes bump in the night
The Profiteer of everyone's dreams

Tosses them into his silken bag
Heads down to the market place
Sells the dreams to the...Read More

it was no bump in the night
a ghostly hand on mine caused fright
the slow click of a bicycle wheel made me tight
the wind blowing it around with eerie might
my eyes won't adjust to light
every impulse says something is not right

Things That go Bump in the Night
As I was going to the loo, in the middle of the night,
I bumped into my husband, he gave me such a fright.
He was just standing there, with everything stuck out,
He looked so menacing, holy hell I gave a shout.

Interconnected, cyber psychology, we are all victims of advancement, 
technological innovations pushed down our throats like harassment.  
Who are they, who goes bump in the night,

Brain waves emit electrical pulses,

SATAN


They call him the king of the dark,
He stands tall and oh so proud,
Laughing while hovering over his tormented crowd,
He's an evil captain of an evil ark.

Do you believe in hell?
And things that go bump in the night?
The burning of...Read More

Two little boys lost in the woods. 

Two little boys trying to get home, only if they could.

Two little boys were freighted by things that went bump in the night.

Two little boys prayed for daylight.

More scary than things that go bump in the night,

This left me like jelly and turned my hair white,
I’m lucky I’m living, to tell of my plight.
