Ghouls and Goblins




                          Soul Appearance  by Joanne Faries

 

eyes glowed pink
moonlight reflected
ghostly skin
pale man reveled
in his appearance
stared boldly into
children’s faces
bared skeletal chest
white hair shock
so pale, it was blue
harvest moon glare
strangers admired his
costume, blood slathered
carving knife
dripped
dripped
 
                                                                            dripped

  2. Oooh, deliciously creepy poem. I really like your decorations... more whimsical than scary.

    Happy weekend!

  3. Fun decorations! I'm glad I didn't run into this gruesome killer. He might have gotten away with it too, if he cleaned up after himself. What a "drip!" A spooktacular poem, Joanne!
