oooh, scary

‘morrow is all hallows eve

some people wait with dread

but I wait with joy and glee

my heart beats up tempo

 

children to their mothers cleave

while scary tales are read

and monster’s eyes glow from the trees

lurking outside their windows

 

black cats rustle in  dry leaves

and graves release their dead

while witches go on flying sprees

an aeriatic limbo

I’m not scared,  I’m not naive

I know what lies ahead

Today’s the one that frightens me

cause i’m now the big 4-0!

~Melanie Thomason

*Just having fun…40 doesn’t scare me!  Bring it on 😀
