Darkness lingers at the edges of night,
mist creeps in; a cloud of white.
Eerie stillness fills the air,
a forbodding sense urges one to beware.
Ghoulish laughter echoes; sealing my doom;
seek refuge from the night less you end up in a tomb.
Floorboards groan and creak; words of despair,
as the night's chill lays stagnant everywhere.
Fear, apprehension, grow in me,
unable to escape demons; unable to break free.
Hushed whispers surround my mortal being,
I wouldn't expect less when it's Halloween!
Happy Halloween to All!!
