Halloween

Branches covered in a sea of yellow, orange, and red.

Porches boasting carved pumpkins: jack-o-lanterns.

Scarecrows in yards,

and webbing on windows.

 

Children laughing with delight,

their bags full of sugary sweets.

Halloween is a delightful night.

 

“Don’t go to houses you don’t know!”

She didn’t listen.

 

“Leave if the light isn’t on.”

She didn’t pay attention.

 

“Run and scream if needed.”

But she couldn’t make any noise.

 

A little girl dressed in a fairy’s gown,

a sparkly tiara on her head,

who would never get her fairy tale.

Halloween isn’t such a happy night.
