~~~ HALLOWE'EN ~~~

Updated on November 19, 2014

~ HALLOWE'EN ~



In the dead of night, a noise dost ring;

A metallic ping; compressed bed spring?

The hum of a lamp, the creak of a stair;

A contorted shadow, you could have sworn, wasn't there.

What's that sound approaching?, No need to scream for mother;

Of course you'll be safe, under your stab-proof covers!

Was that a dull, heavy plod, on the roof up above?

What's tapping under the bed, is it a sharp-fingered glove?


There's another new thud, upon the stair;

Damn certain you know, that there's no one there!

Is that a cackling hag, ringing the front-door bell?,

To strangle you to death, then take you to hell?

Hound's fretting, and whining, then paws at the corner;

Cat stares in mid-air, and rasps like a mourner.

There's something here a presence, tonight!

Refuses to leave,'till it's given you fright.

An incubus, succubus; spectre, or ghost;

There's no way of knowing, who's this unholy host?

Must levitate, and throw you across the room;

To open your veins, and lead you to doom.


In the closing minutes, before the dawn,

Is where your greatest, sleepless, fears are born.

You switch on the light, but the bulb goes pop;

Something slides in your room and your guts just flop.

There's a stench of evil, you feel stagnant death;

An icy blast, from a demonic breath.

Haunting tones, from a girl crying,"Daddy!",

Must save her now, from this evil baddie.


Paranormal behaviour, laced with supernatural fears;

Wraiths scare you to death and reduce you to tears.

The old, grey lady wants to hurt you tonight;

To drive you insane, with your neck wrapped real tight.

Hell doth unleash; the ghoul is loose,

To force you, to a hopeless, death-gripped noose.

Re-enacting fate, over, and over, again;

That evening she hung, back in nineteen-ten.

Fiance', disgraced her, couldn't bear the shame;

Condemned to repeat, this hanging, again.


Meddling with powers, you don't understand;

Tarot, and Seance, your soul they demand.

Tonight, is the night, when the payment is due;

Collected by devils, get ready, it's you!

Now gulping the air, your mind runs astray,

Why is grandpa's rocking-chair, beginning to sway?

Unearthly noises, make their presence felt,

For hundreds of years, in this house, they have dwelt.


The wind starts to howl, and the rain falls in sheets;

No shelter for you, in those dark, cursed streets.

The homeless undead, stalk all over this place;

Leper-skinned zombies, want to eat your face.

A cowled figure skulks glaring red-coaled eyes;

Seeking a soul, it can cleverly disguise.

This screaming skull, with an elongated jaw,

Must rend your body 'fore it falls to the floor.

It won't give up,'till you're hung, drawn and quartered;

Your sacrificed corpse, unspeakably slaughtered.


A dark entity, seeks your pubescent daughter,

Must shield her with the cross, that grandma bought her.

Dispatch slavering wolves, with a silver bullet,

And the Count, damn his black heart, with a sword to the gullet.

Have they come for you, or is it all in your head?

Oh no!, it must be Hallowe'en, instead!

All of this traditionally, embodied horror;

Will soon disappear, by dawn, tomorrow.

So whilst the undead are walking the earth,

And seeking to mentally take over your turf,

Just pull up a chair and laugh in their face,

'Cos the whole damn charade, is just a thrill of the chase.


Sleep well, my beauties : )

      Wonderful Skye!

      You are so right, and your steadfastness is exceptionally noteworthy - you are strong in faith beloved sister, and those minions of mischief are in for a lost weekend if they ever dare come near you.All glory to God, and a hearty 'Amen' from me :)

      Take care sis, and know that you are loved with such heartfelt sincerity.

      Hugs to you, in His Love,

      R.Q. My you are talented dear friend. Wow. As reading I just kept thinking I am so grateful I have the name above every name to cast out any evil spirit. They may try to come near but not even the gates of hell can come against Jesus. Many times the evil one has tried with his warfare at me.

      I have the armor of God. Whew and Halleluiah. All glory to God.

      Fantastic read. Thumbs up dear brother.

      Hi wetnosedogs!

      Glad that it appealed to you, and relieved that I don't have to hang around to mop up tears of fright :)

      Best Wishes to you, and Roscoe & Co.

      It's O.K. to stop shaking now Chuck - they're on a tea break lol!

      Lol!! laying on top of the foil haha! Faith....the kitchen foil normally works, but I'll wager you have a clever, extraordinary ball of fur on your hands, and you're going to have to box clever with her feline training.And I'm well, thanks for asking - just had so much to deal with, like you have, over the past few days.

      Perhaps the chair thing might work - it's got to be worth a try, or else there only seems to be left the last chance saloon of physical coercion. I really hope things work out for you, and you gain satisfaction with those serious troubles of late.

      Thank you;

      Warm Regards,

      R.Q.

      If I was younger, much younger, I would be crying and carrying on. Now, this is a great Halloween poem, funny and a good scare.

      LOL thanks Romeos, I know they do not allow for much on the answers to questions. I just tried to aluminum foil thing and he ran of initially, but now laying on top of the foil LOL May have to try the chair thing. Thanks so much. : ) They did have the questions where one could comment more than once, as I was going to let others know that the foil did not work. LOL

      Love your wonderful poem here for Halloween. Was thinking after your answer to my question you were busy off-line as I had published a new hub, but didn't get a visit, and so I did see where you had commented something somewhee with some sort of troubles. Hope all is well in your world.

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Hi Anna,

      I don't adhere to, or subscribe to any of these superstitions, or any kind of metaphysical, or philosophical offerings, or those pseudo-sciences that attempt to pass themselves off as exact sciences - I try to just stick with the New Testament, as all of the answers to life I've found to be in there.

      Thank you, and have a marvelous day; : )

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      I had to Google that; I had never heard of Spiritism.

      It is obviously something you feel strongly about and I respect that.

      As I said before well written and obviously thought provoking too!

      Hi Anna;

      Thanks for stopping by again - you are right that it is the seed of fear planted in the mind which is helped along by using the outward tools, and festivals, to further enhance, and consolidate those fears, especially of the unknown, which are most prevalently brought to the fore by the supernatural and the paranormal, usually to draw away from the light, and towards the darkness, also employing the various uses of psychometry, such as cards, and other associated paraphernalia.

      There is a major difference, I've learned, between ' Spiritualism ' , and ' Spiritism '.

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      That's interesting. It was the fear factor and imagination creating havoc I thought was true.

      I have Angel cards and do Reiki and I am definitely sane :) Although your right seances definitely aren't a good idea.

      * A Message For Faith Reaper *

      I couldn't fit a full answer in reply to your question, in regards to training your kitten to stay off the table-top, so shall leave more detail here. A simple solution could be to stack your chairs after mealtimes, or move them away from the table so your mini beast has nothing with which to launch him/herself to land on your prized woodwork. Putting aluminium foil on there will deter furball from jumping on the table next time, as they hate the feel of kitchen foil on their paws - they'll soon get the message, and hopefully will not jump on again. If they do jump on, then when removing them, don't pick him/her up, but grab them by the loose flesh at the back of their neck, as their mother would do with her mouth when the kitten wanders to a place he/she is not allowed, and alight them on the floor. If a combination of the aforementioned fails, then a very gentle tap on the tip of their nose should do it.

      Let's hope you find time to enjoy your titchy critter, without it costing you the quality, and hygiene of your best woodwork. :))

      Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      Thanks Anna; yeah - there is truth in there regarding Tarot and Seance, and why they shouldn't be messed with, as I've heard stories of folk ending up in a lunatic asylum through dabbling, creating severe mental health issues.

      Again, thank you for dropping by and leaving such generous commentary.

      Best Wishes,

      R.Q.

      Really funny.

      Kind of scary and perhaps seeped in truth at places but very funny and great use of rhyming.

      Liked it very much. You write in different genres and them pull them all off effortlessly. Credit to you.

      Anna :)
