The Headless Ghost

Updated on October 24, 2011

Goblin glowing by the window

Monster hiding under my bed

Ghost floating around my home

Footstep I’m hearing…”thump thump thump”

Dogs howling outside my yard

Wind blowing brought chills to my spine

Witches on broomstick flying across the moon

“Yeee hee heee heeee heeeee” she cried

And then I heard someone running in the woods

Like escaping from someone

And then I heard a scream….”Ahhhhhhhhhh”

Along with a sound of a chop

My eyes open wide with fear and heart pounding hard

I look through the window and see

A body that was chopped with an ax

Being drag along a grassy autumn field

Trials of blood trace mark the ground

Which lead to the grave yard

The gate of the cemetery creeks

Owls hoot and bats screaming welcoming the dead

The ghostly man watch the zombies eat

The flesh of the old man

And then a young man believed to be a visitor from the castle of doom

Gallop from the wood

His horse lamed on the foot by a rock from a run

Screaming in such distraction

So a man camped where the murder was done

Fresh blood stains melt upon the ground he lays

As a wind hurried past with shout

Thunder roars tangled the night sky

Bring horror to my heart

I scream outside my window, to warn him the evil

Will come by to kill him, move along and don’t return

But words that I say comes in mute

He could not hear me…so I watched…I watched…I watched…

A creature of infinite dread

A thing with face of an ape

With eyes like of a dead

Came dragging with an ax

The man sank deeper to the ground

Lean against the hollow tree

With terrors I see in the man eyes

As the creature chopped his head

He died…

His spirit along with his horse

Roaming around that deep wood

Every Halloween night, he appear before your eyes

The headless ghost from the castle of doom
