Halloween Creepy Poems and Pictures

Halloween is just a bit of modern fun, imported from USA, and that's how I see it when I write my ghostly pages with horror photos & poems

My Thoughts About Halloween, With Some of My Creepy Poetry About Fear and Foreboding

When I think of Halloween, I picture happy little children at dusk, dressed up in masks and cloaks, wielding pitchforks and brooms, going round their neighbours' houses, banging on doors, shouting "Trick or Treat" and demanding gifts from strangers. For some reason this is considered to be a bit of fun, and wholly acceptable on 31st October. In fact a bit like Christmas, but without the carols.

But There's Another Side to Halloween

Below Are Some Halloween Ideas With a Focus on Things To Make You Feel Queasy and Uneasy

Perhaps just one of these will scare the daylights out of you, and make my Halloween!

You will find here for your delectation some scary pictures, creepy poems and disquieting thoughts. And maybe one of them will touch you and stop you sleeping so well tonight.

Here's My Scary Poem on the Theme of Dark Windows:

In London Darkness Only Lies Within the Mind

On a bus

After dusk on a winter's evening,

Fragments of lives flash by,

Framed in gold-lit windows

Nothing spectacular -

A mother in the kitchen making tea,

A family sit round to watch TV.

No murders

And very little violence.

But wait, what's that?

A man is strangling his wife

I think. The bus moves on,

Too fast to witness the event.

Or had he merely stroked her neck

With barely any murderous intent?

Two boys wave wildly,

Noses pressed against the glinting glass;

A man conceals his face from view

As we fly past.

My stop.

Doubtful doorways swathed in shadow

Replace the well-lit safety of the bus

I walk past swarthy cats

Scuttling rats

Groping branches

Up the front path lined with gloomy bays

Where criminals might crouch

And reach the safety of my own dear porch,

Switch on the lights, and once again I find

That in London darkness only lies within the mind.

A Dark Place--It Looks Eerie As Night Falls

Here's Another Scary Poem for Halloween--A Dark Place (Like the Picture Above)

A Dark Place

Through thigh-high water

Where dark volcanic bayonets

Rise imperiously from the sea

I wade between black rocks

Lashed with frothing waves,

Battling to round them,

Stumbling, swept off balance.

I reach the place beyond.

Strands of rank black seaweed

Strung along the beach,

Sombre walls overlook

A desolate bay where

The sun's rays never reach,

And gloomy caves

Cling closely to their secrets.

In high places

Cormorants crouch watchfully.

I turn back,
