    The Halloween game 2015 version

    Iiiiitttt's baaaack......!

    Since October will begin for many WF members long before I'm awake tomorrow, I thought I'd kick this year's version of the Halloween challenge off today. Last year was a riot (and we ended up with a book!), let's do it up even better this year.


    The Bloodmoon provides a fitting start
    to this year’s dabbling in the poetic art.
    Near a year has fled since we last played
    this game of verse, fine words arrayed.


    So write your limericks, sonnets, and free verses
    about daemons, witches, killers, and curses.
    Halloween’s nigh and Esteban’s rising
    to walk the night in a zombie uprising.


    Only two rules to suss before you begin:
    All Hallows Eve is the theme, ‘though the link may be thin,
    and your poem must start with the last two letters you see
    in the verse that you follow – can you agree?


    So come now and join us in this frivolous game,
    and you’ll see that no two poets handle it the same.


    (The next poem starts with... ME)
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    electricity brought life
    to mismatched parts: used, abused, grotesquely fused
    a revolting (mis)representation
    a detested abberation
    sad and alone
    fire brought peace

    Centuries alone, trapped in his
    metal coffin,
    the Vampire rose again,
    seeking blood
    from the sleeping city;
    he climbs the
    skyscrapers with ease
    until he finds
    a victim;
    he leaps through a window
    shattering glass
    and blood as he sinks his
    teeth into waiting
    flesh - only to find it was
    the wrong blood type.

    Periwinkle blue were her lips.
    I could see them through the plastic bag
    even as roses formed in her eyes.

    Her skin will chill,
    eventually.
    They always do,
    eventually.

    Her room is ready, small and dark.
    She'll be waiting there
    to do my will.

    Flesh will rot,
    eventually.
    It always does,
    eventually.

    Lye would do the trick
    dissolve the flesh
    and the bone—
    he thought, as he labored
    in the dirt, all alone.

    Humming,
    he planted Daisy
    next to Hyacinth and Rose
    in his own private garden
    of repose—
    then giggled as the blow flies
    landed on his nose.

    See the hills made of bone,
    Dully glistening,
    Sucking light.

    See me squatting
    On the topmost skull,
    No horns
    No tail
    No pitchfork or hoof.

    See desolation’s lover,
    Lord of fire,
    god of pain.

    See you bow
    In ignorant pride.
    Minds erased by digital gifts,
    Blank faces shining with LEDs

    See what you worship
    On this skeletal scarp?
    Reflections you cherish
    hide leathery wings.

    See you squatting
    On the topmost skull,
    No horns
    No tail
    No pitchfork or hoof.

    Offal sacks—
    she loved to shop the midnight streets,
    beneath the dark bridges
    she always found the sweetest meats.

    No need for tricks
    if one carried bricks.
    Delicious, wet entrails
    her favorite treat.

    At the altar of the bloody moon
    a seance told of coming doom

    for perchance a ghostly spell
    rang by night a spectral knell

    to call the spectral evil forth
    and split the land from south to north

    to send the living to a dusty grave
    and knowing few will be to save.

    Vexed with a love so deep
    it haunted her sleep
    the ghost of years past
    brought sorrowful shame
    in the darkness of
    the midnight moon

    Zoned out inside the screen
    he heard his girl scream
    and ran to her side
    He woke her gently
    reminding her that
    it was over

    He knew it was coming
    Every Halloween
    it haunts her mind
    and he tries to reach
    her when it controls
    her mind and soul

    He could not break the spell
    it had over her.
    She faded too fast
    and she could not last
    through this evil night.
    This year she fell

    Now he lives without her
    left with just his thoughts
    How long can he survive
    that maleficent
    Hallows Eve Night?
