A Chilling Halloween Poem

I'm not afraid of snakes, or toads, or bugs, or worms, or mice, The things that girls are scared of, I think are awful nice. I'm pretty brave, I guess; And yet I hate to go to bed, For, when I'm tucked up warm and snug and when my prayers are said, Mother tells me "Happy dreams!" and takes away the light, And leaves me lying all alone and seeing things at night. Sometimes they're in the corner, sometimes they're by the door, Sometimes they all just creep and crawl across the bedroom floor; Sometimes they come when I'm asleep, sometimes when I'm awake So softly and so silently, they make me scream and shake. Sometimes they are as black as ink, and other times they're white But colour makes no difference when you're seeing things at night. Once, Mother caught me being bad, fighting in the street, And Father sent me up to bed without a bite to eat. I heard some noises in the dark and up my ears did prick Those things were gathered all around and planning something sick. I was so very scared that time, I got an awful fright It's always when I'm bad that I start seeing things at night. Lucky thing I'm not a girl, or I'd be scared to death. Since I'm a boy, I duck my head and then I hold my breath. When I hear something horrible, crawling up the stairs I promise to be better and I always say my prayers. I'm certain that's the only way that I can make it right When I've been very wicked and start things at night! And so, when other evil kids tempt and coax me into sin, I try to squash the devil's voice that urges me within. At night the things creep closer and they aren't very nice, They want to eat me up without even thinking twice! Eventually these evil things will drag me out of sight I hope I don't keep doing wrong, and seeing things at night! Author Unknown

Short Halloween Poem by Aileen FisherPumpkins face

Pumpkin Head We bought a pumpkin big and round that lived the summer through without an eye to look at things ... and now it looks through two. It used to be all dark inside when growing on the vine, but now it has a toothy smile and face that's full of shine.

Apple Bobbing - by Carolyn Wells

You wouldn't believe On All Hallow Eve What lots of fun we can make, With apples to bob, And nuts on the hob, And a ring-and-thimble cake.

The Hook - A Scary Halloween Ghost Story

Shelagh was happy, it was Halloween and she was in love. This evening she would see Jack and they were going to Reading to watch a movie that she particularly wanted to see. As she considered what to wear she hummed along to the music on her radio. The news presenter cut in to issue a news flash that a serial killer had escaped from the nearby Broadmoor Mental Hospital. The presenter described the man as deranged with only one hand as the other had been replaced with a hook. He was not to be approached as he was classified as very dangerous. The Hook - A Classic Halloween Ghost Story Shelagh took little notice of the newsflash as she sang to the next tune being played. She showered and dressed in her most fetching outfit for the evening out. Jack arrived in his new [to him] Lexus and they set off from Crowthorne to see the film. The movie proved to be excellent and on the way home Jack pulled into a quiet lane near Easthampstead for a kiss and a cuddle while listening to the romantic songs played on his digital radio. As had happened earlier the programme was interrupted by a news flash which stated that the killer was still at large and had not been taken into custody. Jack appeared not to hear the news and carried on canoodling. Shelagh was now scared as Easthampstead is rather like the back of beyond and the night was pitch dark with no moon. She asked Jack to take her home. Jack preferred to stay in the romantic situation in which he found himself and for some little while they argued about the 'hook man'. Just then, the car rocked and there was a loud noise. Shelagh screamed at Jack to drive on and he seemed oblivious to the earlier movement. She shouted again and, Jack, with a scowl, raced off into the night. At her home, near Crowthorne, Jack got out to open Shelagh's door as he thought that would impress her and let her know that he was not angry with her after their cross words. He walked round the Lexus and stared fixedly at something on the side of the car, his mouth gaped and moving soundlessly. Shelagh, concerned, rolled down her window and shrieked at what she saw. There, on the door handle, right next to where she had been sitting hung, a hook.

A Creepy Tale from a Vienna Graveyard

Chris Cross, a tourist in Vienna, is going passed Vienna's Zentralfriedhof graveyard on October 31st.  All of a sudden he hears some music.  No one is around, so he starts searching for the source. Chris finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827. Then he realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward! Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades Tim Burr, a friend, to return with him. By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backward. Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar. When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backward. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th.  By the next day the word has spread and a throng has gathered around the grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played backward. Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group. Someone in the crowd asks him if he has an explanation for the music. "Oh, it's nothing to worry about" says the caretaker. "He's just decomposing!"

A True Scary Tale John Stafford, 54, of Scarborough, Yorkshire, England suffers from debilitating arachnophobia Will and Guy have discovered.

He claims the condition is so bad that his doctor has told him even fake rubber spiders displayed in shop windows could give him a fatal heart attack. Describing his reaction when he sees a spider, he said, 'I stop breathing and pass out, it's just terrifying.' Mr Stafford added that he had tried everything from hypnosis to pills to cure his lifelong fear, but without success. His wife Maria, 44, described the moment she feared for her husband's life after he saw some spiders in a shop window display, saying he passed out and slumped against her before she was able to bring him round. She added, 'I've known my husband since I was four years old and I don't want to bury him now.' See more creepy Halloween ghost stories Footnote: Please send us your scary Halloween poems.
