Lights Out!

On a deserted, darkened street

Halloween arrives with its treats

 

The two of us, walking down the lane

Scared and excited, looking for fame

 

An empty house breathes, coming alive

Energy awakens and desires to thrive

 

An electrifying party is set for tonight

The ancient house turns up its lights

 

A full moon illuminates the night sky

Just as witches in black, prepare to fly

 

Special guests add to the scary fun

Arriving from their past, one by one

 

Escaping from his creator’s famous lab

Frankenstein stumbles in, frightfully fab

 

Waking up from sleeping in a coffin bed

Dracula flies over, with a thirst for “red”

 

Howling eerily, over sighting a rare full moon

Wolfman pounces in, not a moment too soon

 

Sitting like unsuspecting flowers on a wall

The two of us don’t want this to end at all

 

Music and spirits fill the old, rundown place

This Halloween returns with a familiar taste

 

The impromptu party doesn’t last long

Finishing the night with one final song

 

Precisely tapping ruby-colored shoes three times

A young girl requests to return home before Nine

 

Walking past the darkened, empty house

You and I cannot even hear a tiny mouse

 

Realizing again, it’s time for lights out

Planning to return in a year, no doubt

  1. Really enjoyed this line…“Frankenstein stumbles in, frightfully fab” because it reminded me of the old cartoon and song about “The Monster Mash” from so long ago! Thanks for bringing back fun memories!
