Halloween

Halloween

A Poem by Moonie
"

~trying comedy~

"
A night of spookes, scares and shivers,
jack o' lanterns and goosebump-givers.
Ghosts and Goblins lurk at every turn.
Puff up your cowardly heart or return.
At every alley, black cats roam.
At every street, a sneering gnome.
Bogeymen and night- mares hiding
Headless horsemen gallantly striding.
Ghostly chariots and drivers,
spirit swordsmen, and knifers.
Bloody, my dear is your moon,
and I'm afraid you must finish soon.
Your stars are crossed. 
You are alone and lost.
The graves are stirring. 
The cats are purring.
Your luck is wretched
You are covered in bat s**t.
It is the terrible midnight hour,
and you're stuck in this haunted tower.
Tick, tick, tick goes the clock.
You are pale as paper, you barely talk.
Slimy ghouls wait for you 'cross the lake.
You are frightened. You start to shake.
Sweat and fear drips from your brow,
as they towards us wade and row.
Their oars are slapping,
your footfalls are tapping.
To your curious inquisition, I must say
your time is cursed, you must haste away!
But before I vanish, I must warn you, my dear,
the ghosts are famished,  and their feast is here.
Beware of the tricksters,  and the coffin dwellers,
the liars, and the amulet sellers.
Take out the cauldron, my precious,
and hope the warlocks haven't tricked us.
Pick up the wooden ladle,
Come sit on my spirit saddle
Stir and mix your potions right.
I wish you, sir, a very hauntful night!

Seems I may have missed this beautiful terror when you first confessed it here, but it is in perfect timing for the season now. You create such a dark flow and form whispering over the misted night, and how you awaken everything deliciously wicked in this wild wonderland. :)

I honestly wish more people wrote Halloween themed poems at all times of the year.
I find such joy in all the imagery, from ghosts, ghouls and graves, I am smitten with it all!

For me, this piece was like a perfect piece of candy.
Delicious, fun and uplifting.

Loved it!

Why, thank you!!! Ha, and for me, that review has to be the sweetest candy!!
Ghosts and Goblins lurk at every turn.
Puff up your cowardly heart or return.
Great start and an excellent work. I haven't read a halloween poem darker, frightening and amazingly written than this one. Really, managing a horror poem with rhymes is quite a difficult task but you gave the perfect shot . I am saving it into my library . Loved it, every line was scary.
Have a nice time writing.

Oh, my my, thanks a lot for that stellar review!!! :) :):) You flatter me, dear! :D
Well done! The poem drips with ghoulish Halloween rhetoric. I am almost convinced that I was there among monsters and grins. I wish the poem would never end.

My impressions of this poem agree with Einstein. It is indeed fun and clever and I also had to laugh at the "covered in bat s**t" part. Well done! Yes, a little late for Halloween, but it'll be around next Halloween!

what fun .. i think using turn and return is cheating a bit ;) (could be burn, stern, learn etc) i absolutely love these lines:
"Your luck is wretched
You are covered in bat s**t." .. its a fine contrast to the rhyme scheme .. made me chuckle for sure! at first i thought that the "you" was Halloween itself .. but your closing verse set me straight .. you have a cohort at the caldron eh!?
