As we all know this Saturday (31st of October) is Halloween! For the challenge this week we are required to dress up our blogs and write a spooky piece of poetry or short story. I have already dressed up my blog with black bats and spooky pumpkins. I wrote a piece of poetry about a ghostly figure trapping an infant:
The lights are flashing in my room,
all of a sudden everything goes dark.
Fearing for my life I feel around for somewhere to hide,
but nothing is in site.
I hear a creak in the door
a wheezing groan approaches me,
my senses are disabled as the threat tries to choke me.
Then the lights are turned on.
I turn to see my assassin,
but nobody is in sight.
The grip on my body tightens,
and the world goes black again.
