A loud, raspy scream

He took his last breath of air

Sounds of death echo

They Come

From under the bed,

to the corners of madness…

Monsters are coming.

Ill eat your eye balls,

Children, adults, all ages…

Keep you in cages

Horrors of the Night

Running in the night

I have no fear of the dark

Just what lurks in it

You Cannot Leave Now

You cannot leave now

We entangle you in lies

To become the night

Behind the Shadows

Possessed, creepy, fowl

Something lurking in shadows

It’s coming towards me

I like pumpkin pie

Do not ever forget the cream

Or else you get the screams
