Here is my Halloween poem. It will surprise you all! Enjoy!
LATE NIGHT DELIGHT (thanks to Poe’s Raven)
Once upon a midnight dreary, searching the internet, my eyes grew bleary,
and soon the words were dancing on the screen that I viewed.
Briefly nodding, nearly falling, suddenly my skin was crawling,
as if a spirit hovered near, setting off a fearful mood.
‘There’s nothing there,’ I whispered,
‘only thoughts misconstrued,
Only this and nothing more.’
As my fingers remounted the keys, suddenly I sensed a breeze,
and my eyes slowly glanced around my gloomy room.
Timidly I chanted a prayer, hoping there were no phantoms there,
as shivers crept up my spine, and the room felt like a tomb;
‘Stop this imagining! Stop all this doom and gloom!
It’s in your mind, and nothing more.’
I observed the computer screen, and was shocked at the scene,
performed in graphic detail before my very eyes.
I viewed me seated in my chair, totally enrapt and unaware,
of a macabre creature standing silent behind me.
Far too frightened to look behind, and too terrified to flee-
‘There’s only me here, nothing more!’
Then the scene showed this specter, suck my blood like it were nectar,
and I heard an arousing moan as my spirit was transformed.
Next I viewed me turn and kiss the demon with corporeal bliss,
and soon we fell upon the bed and, well, …we performed.
As I watched, my fear was gone, and my cold body it had warmed-
‘Oh my goodness, please, I want more!’
Suddenly the screen went black, and I gave it a whack,
hoping to continue the scene that played before my eyes.
Pleadingly I loudly prayed, for a miracle to pervade,
and waken my computer from this untimely demise.
Nothing could make it work, it was dead I did surmise-
‘As usual, I’m left wanting more!'
