WHAT HAUNTS THE NIGHT?

                    WHAT HAUNTS THE NIGHT


 Stumble upon a haunted house,


 Ghosts of fear that roam everywhere.


 A black cat watches all that you see,


 Not a candle is lit, in a place of misery.


 Through a howling wind, you can listen as it sounds,


 Somewhere out in the darkness, a werewolf cries.


 Lock the windows as they feed in the night,


 Vampires that do not die are there in the moonlight.


 Hidden in the basement is a mummy's tomb,


It rises on a cold, cold, night and wanders till dawn.


 A monster that's brought back to life,


 Frankenstein is a thought full of fright.


 What haunts the night, an old witch on a broom 
 Flying by.

 A spell she casts to those on this night.


 Legends and fables, fantasy or fact,


What haunts the night, is it all in your mind?

    • Thanks for reading. Halloween has never been good for me since as a child when I was 7 my dad fell off a cliff on Halloween night. Palos Verdes, CA. So, I write.
