Haunted streets of London

Her mind was at ease as she gracefully walked
Through the streets of London at night
As the air stood still and her limbs got cold
She remained calm but clenched her fists tight
The silence, the silence; it deafened her slowly
Her vision was blurred so she picked up her pace
Her heartbeats were brutal like never before
Fearful tears began to flood her face

Her legs were brittle; she collapsed to the ground
A warm mist brushed the back of her neck
She kept saying ‘don’t look back keep walking’
Ditching her moral sense she turned to check
Mistake; a large mistake: it was repulsive a filthy sight!
Its gazed just like a predator, waiting for it’s pray
She wiped her tears gripped the floor
And prepared herself to run away!

Her heart stopped as she ran for her life
She saw a building and stumbled inside
She lost it; for now but not for ever
It is after her, she cannot always hide
What did she expect? Peace? Harmony?
She should have known, she should have seen
Nothing ends well in the haunted streets on London
On the dreaded day of Halloween!

    A perfect poem for halloween, spooky. Don’t look back, keep walking – why do they never heed this advice in horror films?

    – I have also posted a halloween verse though not nearly as good as your offering and certainly not penned by me.

    Hi Marinela .. lovely poem .. and you were so right .. there were very funny people around London over Halloween .. blood and gore, torn clothes, ghostly faces, ghoulish ones too .. the tube was packed, the streets morbid and deathly pale .. just glad I had a warm bed to jump into away from it all! & now glad I’m home!! Have a good week .. Hilary
