Red's Ghost

Red's Ghost

A Poem by Joseph - Michael
"

Sean M Adams requested me to write a ghost story for Halloween, so here goes nothing.

"
 
 
 
Walking Across The Old Cemetery Off The Path
 
Looking At All Of Those Graves And Tombstones
 
A Beautiful Woman In Red Is Enjoying The Natures
 
Humming Softly To Create Her New Personal Tones
 
Looking At The Sparrows Fluttering Around Birdbath
 
 
  
The Sky Started Turning Gray And Darkens
 
She Faces Up, Looking Around And Wondering
 
 Everything Seems To Becoming Even More Blurry
 
In The Back Of Her Innocent Mind That's Pondering
 
Fading In Harshly, The Sounds Of The Dogs Barking
 
 
 
She Quickly Stands On Her Guard High And Mighty
 
See Nothing, But The Statues And Gargoyles Everywhere
 
The Wind Dies Slow And The Sound Begins The Purring
 
According To Her, It Sounds Like "Come On Over Here"
 
Her Heart Beats Faster As She Get Even More Frighten
 
 
 
The Woman Runs Toward The Gargoyle To Hide
 
Leaning Against The Stone Base Of The Statue
 
Suddenly, She Hears The Nasty Sound Of Slurping
 
A Small Drop Of Slimy Drool Like Lands On Her Shoe
 
She Looks Up Then Covers Her Mouth To Avoid The Cry
 
 
 
The Statue Of Gargoyle Resembles From Her Past
 
The One And The Only Demon She Once Fought
 
Her Stomach On Its Own Begins Hastily To Churn
 
Because The Gargoyle Is Looking At Her Thoughts
 
She Lets Out Her Scream And Runs Away Fast
 
 
 
 The Statue Jumps Out And Begins The Chase
 
She Runs Into The Forests From The Graveyard
 
Her Decisions Keep Giving Her The Wrong Turn
 
The Gargoyle Rams Through Everything Hard
 
So It Would Never Loose Her Scents To Trace
 
 
 
She Accidentally Runs Back Into The Same Spot
 
The Woman Turns Around And Breathing Heavy
 
The Demon Stops And Stares At Her For Sure
 
It's Stone Body Crackles As It Moves Steady
 
She's Looking At It And Could Feel It's Heat Rots
 
 
 
It Leans Closer To Her As She's Still On Her Feet
 
They Are Looking At Each Others In Their Eyes
 
It Notices That Her Big Blue Eyes Remains Pure
 
It Smiles At Her And Hushing, "Relax, You're Fine"
 
She Whispers, "Oh, My, You Still Have Big Teeth"
 
 
 
The Demonic Gargoyle Smiles Out More Foul
 
That It Finally Getting The Personal Vengeance
 
And Shredding Her To Pieces For It's Own Cure
 
Showing No Mercy Nor Remorse Like Any Menaces
 
As It's Done Eating Her, It Breaks Out The Howls
 
 
 
It Already Had Been More Than Several Years
 
Since The Little Red Riding Hood Had Won
 
Against The Big Bad Wolf's Ultimate Curse
 
His So Called Tricks Caused Him To Be Gone
 
From Being Beaten And Left To Death And Tears

I really like your style of writing. Very gloomy, grey, dark. Very well constructed piece. The reader is taken in for a ride and forced to see it through. This is what makes a good poem. Loved the story and the imagery. Will continue to read your stuff.

Dark and haunting. Very visual in description. Stimulates the readers ear to hear the sounds of the written word. Skillfully written. Enjoyed from beginning to twisted end.
