Tricks or Treats?... A Thriller Halloween Poem

Updated on March 7, 2019


Black as a crow, she hid herself

in nightfields sleek and fresh

as Hallow’s Eve would stir such beasts

to sate their hungry flesh.

The porch light hissed as gothic shapes

of graveyard blood and bone

would dance amongst the vittle-bags

the treaters claimed their own.

She slid her tongue across her teeth

when children came in view

but waited for that human scent...

the boy she always knew.

Beneath the light the boy appeared

in pumpkin-plump attire…

her slit-eyes marked the cherub sweet

to eat her heart’s desire.

Her cravings inched her body forth

through leaves of rustled brown

to slither up the wooden steps

and rise without a sound.

She skulked amidst the candy crocks

and jack-o-lantern stares

in hopes the boy would see her stealth

and blackened nostrils flare.

Past apples covered crispy red

she crept with wily skill,

and made the boy her presence known

to quench her hunger still.

He giggle-tossed a candy corn

to waiting claws with glee,

and watched his kitten purr-delight

Aha...this one’s for me!

Best wishes to everyone for a happy and safe Halloween!

      Hi Bill. Thanks for stopping by. Halloween is such fun...I had more than my share in writing this poem. I appreciate your comments. As a father figure to cats, I know you understood the punchline. Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving! :-)

      @Tobusiness: Hi Jo. Thank you. I would never have allowed anything to happen to that little boy. Actually, my cat, Miss Callie, was the inspiration. And the fact that part of the fun of Halloween is that appearances and reality are rarely slices from the same pie. Good to see you.

      @Jhamann Thank you! And to you and your family as well.

      What fun this is to read and I know to reread. In my youth we went in packs from house to house after the Halloween party at the local elementary school. In my tiny town no trick or treaters come to my house. It is almost unheard of any the town sponsors a party and the kids go there. Kind of sad actually I think...thanks for the great read Genna

      Hi Frank. I didn’t republish, but put this one in the “spotlight” box in time for this year’s festivities. Thanks for the visit, and the comment. I hope you have a fun Halloween. :-)


      Hi Laura. What a thoughtful comment – thank you! :-) We have fun during this holiday, and always do something special for the neighborhood children and their parents. This year, the theme is from “Thriller.” (Last year, it was the Adams Family.) The kids always enjoy themselves and the parents love it as well, so I’m looking forward to it. I enjoy writing in rhyme, and am pleased you had fun with this little spooky poem with a Halloween twist. Good to see you. Happy Halloween.

      Hi. Thank you for that wonderful comment that is in the true spirit of Halloween. We are also getting ready for the big day…it is great fun – for both adults and children. And a happy “Boo” back to you. :)

      @Vincent Moore

      It is always such a pleasure to see you, Vincent. I agree in that this holiday can be great fun for both adults and their children. Creative “tricks AND treats” is what it is truly all about, which is what I tried to convey in the poem, in the spirit of Halloween. I “spotlighted” this poem from a year ago in time for this year’s celebration. Thank you for those kind and thoughtful words. Hugs.


      Hi Mike. It is good to see you and Vincent commenting here in time for this year’s festivities. Halloween is not only such fun, it marks the beginning of the holiday season in the spirit of giving. I had fun writing this poem, and even more delight in seeing some of my favorite hubbers pay a visit. Thank you.


      Hello Mary. Oh…thank you! I hope it was creepy…it was intended to be imaginative and scary with a fun and lighthearted twist at the end – just like Halloween. Your encouraging comment means a lot to this writer. :-)

      Hi Nellieanna…

      You don’t have to wait for any length of time before un-publishing, then copying the content to a new hub and publishing the new hub. I’m not sure about the title to the hub…I changed mine just to be on the safe side.

      I understand about the tiptoeing for I do this, too. Well, most of the time. And I so agree about happy endings with Halloween poetry. As far as real evil and cruelty are concerned, one needs only to turn on the news, and voila! It’s right there. It’s so depressing. Anywho, I look forward to reading your story. :-)

      Oops – before I forget. How do you copy your beautiful art work and flowers, etc., to your hubs? I’ve never figured out how to do this.

      Have a great day. :-)

      BTW - I also have loved good scary stories! The themes I like are those that are just a bit mysterious, suspenseful and ominous, but - as you say - that turn out happy or at least, 'all's well that ends well'. My Halloween story-hub is like that.

      I must admit, though, that what has always been the scariest to me is those stories involving believable actual people who are just evil and cruel. Some of the fictional ones, I just have to turn off. But real 'live' news at times qualifies for that!

    • Nellieanna profile image

      Nellieanna Hay 

      6 years ago from TEXAS

      Aha! Thank you! That makes sense - - well, sense as far as keeping in tune with THTB (and I love that acronym!). And really, it's not all that much trouble to undo and then redo. Is it necessary to wait the 24 hours or whatever it is for the unpublished old one to be actually fully removed from one's statistics list before republishing it? And will the same title 'fly' or does it need to be changed?

      I tiptoe to avoid jumping into deep and unforgiving chasms. But I do like untried territories! :-)

      My story is pretty much an open book - but with scattered pages. It comes out spontaneously in hubs and even in comments, when it's inspired by the other person's referrals to his/hers. There is just so MUCH of it. All my many years have been 'chock-full', as they say. Thank you. You are such a dear!

      Hello Alan! I like classic rhyme and meter at times, and I thought Halloween might be a nice fit for this style of poetry. I’m so pleased you enjoyed this. Thank you. As always, it’s great to see you.


      Hello Mike. Oh good – I’m happy to hear that it jumps from the page…what a nice thing to say! Thanks so much for the comments! Cheers and beset wishes for a Happy Halloween! :-)


      Hi there. What I always loved about Halloween was reading all of the children’s Halloween poetry and “boo!” stories when I was a little girl…the scarier the better, but I liked happy endings. I like classic meter and rhyme at times…it's fun.

      Tiptoeing into the untried is so much fun, Nell. I’d love to read your story! This was my first try at republishing, but it goes something like this:

      First, you unpublish the original; then copy it to a new hub, then publish the new hub. If you don’t follow these steps, they (THTB at HP) will yank it, and unceremoniously I might add, with a note saying that it is a duplicate published hub. Good luck and thanks for those kind words. :-)

      Oh, Genna - this is so charming and fun to read! I missed it last Halloween but wouldn't have minded finding it again; - - it merits repeating. Your style is simply flawless!! It gets my votes across the board!

      You really have me thinking! Last year I wrote a Halloween story. That was exciting to do.

      But maybe I'll republish my Halloween poem from 2010. You give me courage to consider it. Though mine is sinister and evil, it's a bit out of character. I tiptoe into the untried territory! hehe.

      I've never republished a hub and have no idea how. Any clues for a novice in it?

      Dear Lady; republish all you want. I liked the metaphor about the stealthy creature stalking the boy out of hunger. It turns out to be a kitten, young and innocent like the trick or treaters that dress in hobgoblin disguise for boos and goodies. This is what Halloween is all about. Excellent write, my lady.

      Hi Kim.

      We sometimes get dressed up like gypsies and read trick or treaters their fortunes in a special Halloween center we set up near the front door. The kids love it. When my calico was just a kitten, she snuck up the front steps just like the kitten in this poem; she was so cute!
