I step out into the motionless night,
Waiting for something to give me a fright.
The streets are as dark as the eye of a skull,
The only light is the round moons glow.
Is it coming? I don’t know,
I start to feel my fear flow.
Suddenly I decide to run all the way back,
But I can’t find my way for every thing’s black.
I’m terribly scared and I cannot get home,
So I decide to double check that I’m all alone.
I search behind the shifting tree,
But there’s nothing harmful that I can see.
Now I’m looking through a mortals eye’s,
And I could be slaughtered by whatever tries.
I peek behind the drifting bush,
Just to make sure that all is hush.
The coast is as clear as a shard of clean glass,
Will I survive this Halloween, for I made the last.
Waiting for something to give me a fright!
