In the streets and in your home,
These are the places that Ghouls roam.
On straw brooms the Witches take flight,
Children scream in the middle of the night.

Ghost are flying,
Babies are crying.
The Boogeyman's hiding under your bed,
With your eyes open you rest your head.

Zombies are creeping,
Old wooden floors are creaking.
Skeleton bones are rattling,
Werewolves and Vampires are battling.

These Demons are here to give us a scare,
So heed my warning and beware.
You know that this can only mean,
That it's time for Halloween!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this poem!! in south africa people don't really celebrate halloween. but i have a few friends that are studying in america and they said its so much fun. this poem really was so creative and so well put together.

    something i truly love about your writing is that its so versatile! you can write sad poems, dark poems, love poems, funny poems, fantasy... basically any genre and it always comes out absolutely amazing!! i know i have told you this numerous times already but WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!! you are talented!! and damn!! this site needs a higher rating system... 5 is far to low for the quality you produce!! :)
