A Sleepless Halloween Night

Disembodied whispers in your ear

Ghastly shadows causing fear

A chilling breeze flows through your bones.

There’s that sinking feeling you’re not alone.

Lying motionless in your bed

Heart pumping full of dread

Darkness lingers through the endless night.

The skeleton inside you full of fright

Dare not move, dare not look;

Praying for your Holy book

Want to scream, want to cry;

Feeling like you’re about to die

Specters, phantoms, and things unseen;

Just be thankful it’s only Halloween.

END
