The Darkness Within #haibun

everyone is a moon and has a dark side they never show Pale lunar prescience Eavesdropping upon the night Impartial witness Many tales do not tell They gloss over struggle and embellish triumph, They speak only of that quest Into an ancient castle To find a long lost treasure To rescue a love meant to […]

The Witch

She wasn’t meant to fall in love

As she was known to be evil

She was meant to fly the skies above

And be chased with pitchforks, which was so medieval

She wasn’t destined to live happily ever after
She was destined to be defeated
She doesn’t deserve any laughter
And was always thought of as conceited

She wasn’t meant to look pretty
And people feared her
No one ever took pity
She was living in a blur

They all believed what they believed
And thought they were right
Not one thought they’ve been deceived
Because she was the witch, to be slain by a knight

Hallow Halloween

The clock strikes midnight and you’re all alone

An eerie feeling washes over you then you hear a low moan

The floorboards creek but you’re standing still

Your heart now beating fast and suddenly a chill!

Someone or something is wailing in the distance

You now wish you have someone else for assistance

As something is slowly creeping its way to you

And you have a feeling it wouldn’t just say “boo!”

The darkness is hiding whatever is coming while you are now more aware of your fears

You say a silent prayer but it doesn’t stop your tears

You hold your breath as you know the thing is going to get you

Suddenly! You think you hear something coo

You turn around slowly and what do you see?

A mirror showing a reflection of yourself that’s as pale as can be.

All Hallows

dark was the night, darker than nights past

a mist, a fog, crept slowly

and wrapped the town around its arms

 

cold was the wind that blew

colder than any wind that passed

everything was still

the silence was ghostly

 

the moon, full and yellow

an eerie feeling blanketed everything it saw

and there I stood at the cemetery

watching everything unfold

Ghastly

there is something lurking in silence

a strange presence that makes your hair

stand on end

 

you try to scream but nothing

you lost your voice

all you can do is stare

 

you look for words to describe

whatever it is that you see

it’s something….horrible

 

it’s nasty, maybe creepy

you know that it’s scary

“Oh my!”, you scream, it’s just too ghastly

The Haunted House

There is one house in Cheryville

That sits atop a tiny hill

It’s old, it creaked, it didn’t have color

A mansion it was, with a bad-smelling odor

It was built on the eighteen hundreds, they say

It used to be the most beautiful house during those days

Now it sits there rotting slowly

The used to be grand house is now lowly

However, it holds a secret that has been known

People who went inside it have been shown

Outside it looks ordinary

Inside they say it is very scary

A moan you’ll hear, a scream will shrill

Sending shivers down your spine, it’s not a thrill

Someone from somewhere will call your name

No matter how hard you try, you’ll never know where it came

You’ll be poked, pushed and scratched

You’ll be dragged, stabbed or worse when your catched

 Restless spirits haunt the house to this day

That’s why no person would want to stay

“Demolish it!”, others suggested

But no one dared, they were all too scared

“Do not enter”, the sign would warn

That one house on Cheryville

That sits atop a tiny hill
