Disciples of Mischief


Please copy and paste this link and listen while reading, and as always thanks for looking
https://youtube.com/watch?v=zczFoOBe1eQ


I was alone In my room
or so I thought
from with under my bed
came an unearthly knock

stench and filth began to hover
it started to loom
stifling the air
from inside of my room

then a loud crash exploded
and my bed went flying
and there they stood
there could be no denying

disciples of mischief
had come to play
on this dark cold
and dreary day

I tried to run
but there was no use
from inside of my head
came all the abuse.

I yelled and I screamed
get-out you must go
they laughed in my face
saying we don’t think so!

they said we are not leaving
we are here to stay
then it all started
they began to play___!

Jumping, trashing
destroying my place
Imagine the horror
that showed on my face?!

panic and fear
surged through my blood
"OH MY GOD I NEEDED A HUG!"

A ritual was an order
to cleanse my mind
but I could see clearly
I was running out of time

so I thought quick
and grabbed my wand
banishing those demons___!
forever begone!

Cats and brews

Nobody cared her name was Mary Crew
But when on darkest nights
Cats went out but came back only a few
Some bloodied as if they'd been in a fight
Somewhere over the Mews
But who lived there but that sorry sight
The old witch and her brews
What's in there but cat bits, herbs and spice.

Do Curses Work On Vampires

Do curses work on vampires
This I would like to know
For somethings  creating havoc  
In my mouth  
And I've got one less fang to show  
   
Perhaps, it is a deadly spell  
It's just too soon  to tell  
For it pains me just to know  
I can't do too much roaming  
Since my teleporting has gone to hell

Monsters

She told me she was a good girl
Said she was really glad to see me
Said she knew who I was
I could feel her heart beating

She told me about growing up
That she really liked my smile
Then she held my hand tightly
And I knew all the while...

The monsters hiding inside of me
I've lived long enough to see
I've never had control of them
They've never let me free
I've always been afraid I'll find
And most of you will agree
When I look into the mirror
The only monster I see is me

I held her body tight
She began to squeal and pout
I wanted to make her feel better
But the monsters won't let her out

She's not the first to disappear
Soon a new one will come along
One victim after another
And I've done nothing wrong.

ALL HALLOW'S EVE

I see them grinning
Flame of Jack’s warning
Flickers in the night
Masques of purveyors
Of ghostly delights
Hide away from sight
 
The eyes of monsters
Watch from the shadows
Of the inbetween
The smell of sweet death
On their bated breath
This All Hallow’s Eve
 
   those empty tombs
      the coming doom
      so speak your tales
      of haunted hells
      and creaking stairs
      beneath the moon
      if you dare

 
It comes to an end
Another year still
Remains in the brew
So lock up your doors
And draw the curtains
We’re coming for you

Update: I wanted to make some ribbons for my competition but it may take me a little while so in the meantime I am announcing the winners of this competition.

Congratulations Zazzles (Broom) for coming in first place. I absolutely loved your poem Disciples of Mischief. You gave me a proper scare without describing what I should be afraid of. I like the fact that I was forced to use my imagination to paint a picture of your horror, plus they actually came from under my bed. Great piece Zazzles.

Congratulations HadesRising for coming in second place. I loved your All Hallow's Eve piece. I felt this poem was a better submission than the first one. It was way less dark and also gave me a monster to picture in my head. I love the fact that it was about Halloween as well.

Congratulations Wallyroo 92 for coming in third place. I really loved your poem Whispers the Clown. I felt that it was spot on and in the same league as the piece that I used as an example poem. It was frightful and original. Too bad I'm not afraid of clowns though, hell I love Pennywise. You did an excellent job but since you already gave me something to see and imagine clearly the clown just didn't do it for me.

Thank you to everyone who did enter my competition. Everybody did an awesome job. I would never dismiss another person's entry just based on what I like or how I write. In the end, the best poem has to be declared a winner without any personal feelings involved. I believe in fair judgment and following as many guidelines in a comp as you can.
Everybody did a superb job and should be proud of what they wrote. Thanks again. I hope everyone had as much fun writing their pieces as I did reading.
