Noises outside of  your bedroom

shadows cast by the moon,

branches scratch against the window

or is something evil in the room?


The floor begins to creek

then you feel a rush of cold air,

it sounds like dragging feet

then you see a glimpse of wiry hair.


You want to run and hide

but you’re afraid the thing will follow,

no one’s home but you;

you’re so scared you cannot swallow.


You curl up on the bed 

what a cowardly sight

it’s late and getting dark;

you’re too afraid to turn on the light


If it is the Bogeyman you pray

he’ll go away real soon,

then you hear an evil voice whisper

“you’re in for a night of doom.”


You shake and shiver so hard

you tear your shirt and pants,

prayed that god would help you;

thanked him in advance.


Then you hear a voice

it said “you’re having a bad dream

you need to get up from your nap

and get dressed for Halloween”
