Always Halloween

Always Halloween here,
the night is dark
and the moon lights our fear.
Leaves crunch under our feet
as we walk home
with bags full of candy treats.
We can be anything at night,
masks of wolves and vampires,
dancing around bonfires bright.
Down by the graveyard now,
where spirits linger in the cold;
take us by the hand, this is how!
And the howls in the darkness
and the laughter in the shadows,
the graves and their emptiness!
Make it home with our loot,
chocolate and caramels
and lemon drops to boot!
We get ready for bed
as the wind howls and curses
and blows nightmares in our heads.
When we wake, shed not tear,
it all starts again tomorrow;
it’s always Halloween here!

 

Skeleton Girl

Skeleton girl, white bones on black leotard, white make-up, black line of teeth.

Ballet of bones as she dances, the sweet spooky tune, reveals nothing underneath.

The bones hold her up, the hidden flesh makes her real, her soul a shining wreath.

Halloween, and the ghosts and spirits are so close, and winter is coming for sleep.

We drink and we dance and we laugh as the falling leaves and golden moon creep.

I watch the skeleton girl, and sip my red wine, and now her love I cannot now keep.

Her black line is smiling, her eyes bright, and the song a fun time of coming sorrow.

She dances as bones now, for she is young and free, but will be dust on a soon morrow.

She is bones and flesh and a soul, but the days of summer come only for us to borrow.

The song ends, and everyone cheers and whistles, and she takes a bashful bow.

A spirit in the dark, a light in the cold, brings us close, makes a breakable vow.

That we will always burn free, be flesh that is real, be casters of magic somehow.

Ghastly Shows

The wild autumn wild blows
as we stand in line for ghastly shows.
Hand in hand we walk into the dark,
where only our love is a bright spark.

And we see the ghosts and ghouls
and we laugh at vampires; we know their rules.
The zombies walk in the graveyard,
their souls and faces broken and marred.

when it’s over now, and we walk out on the street,
dancing in the skeletal wind, not missing a beat.
We make our world under the kiss of the moon,
never caring that dawn is coming so soon.

Always Halloween
