All Lost Souls, Come Out, Come Out!

Hello boils and ghouls,

In celebration of the season I’m going to post a few lines a day of a Halloween poem that I am working on, with the whole thing coming to a close on Halloween morning. So, enjoy and don’t forget to check back everyday until Halloween for more.

All Lost Souls, Come Out, Come Out

A skeleton hand
I extend to you
A ghastly invitation
That is bleeding right through

Open the box
Peer inside
A severed finger
To jog the mind

Did you remember
To R.S.V.P.
Or will you rest in peace
In the ossuary?

I hope you’ll attend
In the grimist of fashion
A celebration of sorts
In my haunted mansion

Let the festivities begin…

Escape your tombs
Inhabit the halls
Hang arachnids
From all the walls

Ghosts are placed
In every room
Witches shaking
Dust from brooms

Cauldrons baste
Upon the fire
Warlocks soar
Higher, higher

Sorcerers mix
Potions and spells
Poltergeists haunt
Banshees scream out

Large black cats
Crossing paths
New life again
The dead shall have

Werewolves transform
Howls from lips
Vampires arise
From velvet crypts

Pumpkins carved
A sinister face
Every ghoul
Is in its place

Mummies stir
In pyramids
At ancient tombs
Move coffin lids

Famished rats
Scurry about
Cornfield scarecrows
Escape, breakout

Gargoyles awaken
Regain sight
Fill the air
With fevered flight

Primeval sea beasts
Crawl ashore
Hobgoblins gather
On the moor

Slime bubbles up
From the mire
The air is alive
With funeral pyres

Six feet under
From out they dig
Rattling bones
Dance and jig

Spiders, scarabs
And centipedes too
Snakes and serpents
Right on cue

Will-O-Wisps dance
Suspended in fog
Phantoms play
On deserted bogs

Darkness swirls
Round and round
Evil carnivals
Come to town

Bats burst out
From granite caves
Vultures tread
On forgotten graves

Fairies and angels
Run and hide
Corpses and cadavers
Are along for the ride

Voodoo chants
Whispered on the breeze
Yellow full moon
Swirling dead autumn leaves

Headstones tremble
Black candles melt
All lost souls
Come out, come out

Bring a date
Even if they’re dead
Bring a friend
With or without their head

Scrub your skin
Inside and out
Polish dem’ bones
Get even the grout

Sharpen your fangs
Wake the deceased
Trim the claws
And ready the beast

All frightening creatures
Unite, unite
For it is the one and only
Halloween night


Thanks for reading,
