It’s Halloween inside
The skeletons come out of the closet
Fears take me on a spooky ride
Phantom thoughts show their teeth
Vampires knock on the door
Old wounds are being ripped open
Old memories resurrect from their grave
Shadows come to haunt me
But your voice sings a sweet lullaby
and in your arms I’m safe
as I let love conquer it all



  1. That was a rollercoaster of emotion! The title made me think it’d be a cutesy little poem, then it got dark talking about all the inner turmoil, and it ended on a wonderfully sweet note. Thanks for keeping us readers on our toes. Nice poem!
