Halloween contest entry

monster of their dreams

by Neonewman

The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.

I brush the paint across my face
darkness creeps into this place
excitement builds as time draws near
in children's eyes, I'll see the fear

anxiously I await the bell
trick or treat will be the tell
the door will open, I'll hear the screams
for I'm the monster of their dreams

two steps backward they will take
their little hands will surely shake
they'll hold their ground; they will not run
for them, the fear's part of the fun

a candy covered treat they seek
no matter that I am a freak
trick or treat rings out once more
as I growl from my front door

candy in hand they'll run away
to the neighbor's house without delay
no answer comes when Bob's bell rings
Bob has gained his angel wings

he is nailed upon a tree
a gift for all the world to see
No one will notice Bob is dead
a single bullet through the head

Halloween has eased my pain
now begins my twisted reign
