a poem about a boy alone in an old family home.


creepy sounds in the old house



alone at night

old house squeaks and creaks


a noise in the front room

another in the back


ghosts or just mice

enjoying each other


what was that snap

outside the window


someone trying to get in

or a ghost trying to get out


what was that sound in the attic

running across the floor


boy should not stay home

alone at night


next time he will agree to

go to the prayer meeting

with the rest of the family


that is if he is still here

when they arrive home


he prays he will be


he will even act like he loves

his snotty little brother


and gladly go to the next prayer meeting

An aptly spooky poem. It really gives not just a Halloween but also a general Horror vibe. I like it a lot. :)

Thanks Ann.
Yes it is meant for more than just Halloween. Have you ever lived in an old house that makes these creepy sounds? I have when I was a kid. I am now 79 years old and still don't like those sounds. LOL
