Featured Review on this writing by Ann Sepino

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
