Dry can rolls down

Wet and empty alley

All that’s left is an empty can

Dry can.

Scary October 20

Here we are at the unholy month of October. I thought I would do a paranormal, witchy, unholy bunch of poems, some new and some old.

Don’t forget to check out Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman‘s plans for this month!

Today’s poem is about one of Death’s family

SKULLS

Skulls

The girl was a mystery an anathema out of orbit and out of sight

She moved silently shrouded in dark moving by night.

She had an endless yet important job to perform

All skulls must and souls must be collected by dawn.

Moonlight’s silver was all she had ever known

No warmth from the sun, in dark she has grown

Her dress spun from cobwebs lovingly made

By spiders oozing silk thread, around her parade.

Though the night was all that she knew

She longed for the sun and to see skies of blue

Sadly as part of Death’s family

She was condemned to the dark, never to be free.

Skulls, and innocent souls of women, babies and men,

Her tears long dried up, she gathered again and again.

Pleading and begging for time off, did her no good

Death simply demanded she did as she should.

The girl was a mystery an anathema out of orbit and out of sight

She moved silently shrouded in dark moving by night.
