Goblins

The moon has risen

the sun has gone away

the goblins are roaming

now is the time to play

In the woods

picking up sticks

marshmallows over a fire

combined with trail mix

Moon eclipses

darkest of night

ghost stories are told

small screams of fright

Inside a tent

all snuggled in bed

sounds of an owl

causing nightmares to dread

Frost in the morning

time to go home

goblins laughing

memories when they are grown

The Attack

Seeping through veins

the river of blood flows

carrying a secret

that no one knows

Fear and anxiety

spreading through each cell

blazing brightly

as it enters hell

Every deed

presented from within

a towering presence

with an evil grin

Fire and lava

sears the blood

the heart screams

terror in the flood

Begging for mercy

wanting to be free of the pain

calling for help

as heat sears the veins

Out of the darkness

mercy relieves the heat

calmness is returning

with each heart beat

Attack is over

as the night turns to day

life returns to normal

as the demons run away

A Victim’s Vengeance

Out of the belfry

bats fly high

searching for blood

in the nigh

A recent murder

a smell of fresh blood

a corpse is lying

in the mud

Spirit leaving the body

calling the bats by name

demanding vengeance

on the one to blame

One bat drinks blood

following the scent

catching the murderer

answering the lament

Murderer is tortured

as the bat feeds on him

refusing to repent

his future is grim

Death finally comes

on Halloween night

spirit eternally roams the Earth

tormenting all with fright

The Monster Within

A riddle to solve

reality or a dream

another October

a brilliant Halloween

The night is dark

time for the monster to rise

pent up anger and rage

a struggle to survive

Owls hoot

leaves gone from the trees

fire in the soul

struggling to breathe

Loud thunder

strikes of lightening in the sky

the pain intensifies

letting out a screaming cry

The rain beats down

in an attempt to cleanse

moving toward shelter

refusing to make amends

Lightening strikes a tree

surrounded by fire

survive or succumb

the situation is dire

The monster within

what choice did it make

the sun is rising

is it dead or awake

The Evil Clown

A clown came up to me

while walking up the street

screaming in terror

scary fellow to meet

Transformed into evil

on Halloween night

purpose to capture souls

weakening with fright

Some were easy

filled with pain

refusing to heal

a great gain

Others filled with joy

impossible to capture

healing those around them

caught up in rapture

My spirit went into battle

transformed him with light

evil has been defeated

the clown’s future is now bright

Meditation of the Night

Rising each night

the moon lights up the sky

wonders and mysteries

candy for the eye

Surrounded by stars

beauty and peace

gifts from above

blessings increase

Sitting by a fire

watching the sky move

stars are sparkling

dancing to the groove

Planets appear

shining bright

wonder what is on them

following the light

A comet passes

tails with debris

how fun to ride it

exciting thought to me

Drifting off

cool breeze on my face

blanket to keep warm

cricket songs to embrace

Meditation over

feeling safe and secure

surrounded by serenity

my spirit is pure

Nightmare of Death

Nightmares haunted me

while in a deep sleep

fighting evil creatures

the hole is deep

Monopolizing the nightmare

is the fear of dying

is there life beyond

a purpose for trying

Grabbing a compass

which direction to run

morning is coming

east to the rising sun

A wraith appears

think it’s mother

pointing to the sky

beginning to smother

Grasping for breath

one final attempt

slaying all fears

my life is exempt

Becoming one with the light

surrounded by love

friends and family join with me

grace from above

Living in harmony

this world has no fear

peace and contentment

not one tear

Sun is rising

nightmares are gone

free to live

grateful for the dawn

City Window Inspiration

Haunted by doubt

holding a notebook of fears

praying for a better day

hoping inspiration is near

A window view

of the concrete city

spying a kenspeckle figure

body language quite witty

Glancing at the flowers

a thought came to mind

writing about the figure

including a creative design

Fear disappears

presentation quickly comes together

heavy spirit lifts

now light as a feather

Success comes

all doubts put away

smiling and grateful

inspiration came to stay

The Filtering Doorway

Walking through the forest

contemplating heaven

sun filtering through the clouds

a beautiful intercession

A doorway appears

reflections in the light

past, present, and future

all within sight

In this perfect moment

love radiates from within

sending hugs and kisses

through the wind

The golden leaves fade

door is closed

time is reset

leaves decompose

Seasons change

fall to winter

soul rejoices

in nature’s splendor

Pocket of Dreams

In the midst of the cobweb

there is a pocket of dreams

interpretations of life

trapped in a screen

Thoughts holding a conference

determining what holds power

discussions begin

at the midnight hour

Emotions assist thoughts

as the leaves glide in the wind

colors represent feelings

the veil is thinned

Red representing rage

at things that are unfair

feeling trapped

caught in a snare

Others leaves without color

representing death

is it all over

at the last breath

Yellow leaves

representing life

hope and love

defeating the strife

Morning comes

dew on each thread

sparkling diamonds

there is nothing to dread

Joyful thoughts

rule this day

feeling love

protected by a sun ray
