Creatures of Fright: Ghost Art, Halloween Poems and Ghost Stories
Ghastly, Ghostly Scary Art and Halloween Ghost Quotes
I must admit Halloween has got me writing about topics I usually do not touch. Ghosts been one of them. I confess I must be one of the biggest cowards on earth. I even got scared researching material for this hub. Right now that you are done laughing here is a halloween ghost poem and some "ghastly scary ghost art." It really was not smart of me to write this hub at night but I did, so I hope I sleep well.
Thirteen Halloween Ghost Quotes

A Halloween Ghost Poem by Injete Chesoni
Spare A Thought for Troubled Ghosts on Halloween
On every Halloween
They come out in their ghostly sheen
Eerily dressed in silver white glows
Their faces masked in pale sorrow
They mourn and sway
And shriek the night away
Wailing because they cannot enjoy
the glories of day anymore
For they are ghostly souls
Doomed to glow
Only in the night
No longer for them
The pleasures of daylight
Their lot is cast
They are now creatures of fright
That pry this earth
In the darkness of night
Scaring all humankind.
And on Halloween
We mock their plight
As we dress up
And frolic in earthly delight
I am a ghost we say
With mock display
Dressed up in costumes
as we bob and sway
Ne’er sparing a thought
For the troubled souls
Who are trapped on this earth
As ghosts and ghouls
