T’was the Night of Halloween

T’was the night of Halloween
And all through the house,
Every creature was dressed up,
Even the mouse.

Pumpkins were carved in faces with care,
In hopes that trick-or-treaters would soon be there.
Spooky Halloween night,
Every child is affright.

Candy fills bags with cheers of glee.
“Full-size candy bars? YIPPY!”
“Trick-or-treat” rings through the streets,
As children are given free sugary treats.

Witches, vampires, and superheroes, all in a line,
As scary decorations send shivers down each spine.
At the end of the night, the children go home
And through their mountains of treasure, they roam.

The parents warn, “Don’t eat too much!”
But the children send them away with, “Oh, hush!”
As desserts shrink, children’s opinions soon revert.
T’was the night of Halloween, and beds are filled with bellies that hurt.

I'm the girl that's named after the famous city of lights and cameras, but am too shy to talk to the kid sitting next to me in class. I'm the girl that blasts opera while I commute to and from school, but is in the crowds of rock shows on Friday nights. I'm the girl who can't draw to save her life, but takes beautiful pictures. I'm the girl who worries about everything, even when things aren't so bad. I can't be put in a box, so you want to know more? Read my work.
