OCTPOWRIMO – POEMS – DAY # 31 – SCARECROWIMG_20150928_151453

Today is the last day of the OctPoWriMo poetry challenge…31 poems in 31 days. It’s been fun again this year. I’ve met some fantastic poets, and learned a few things along the way. Until we meet again, I wish everyone the best in your writing adventures! 🙂

SCARECROW

The scariest thing I’ll ever see,

Is a scarecrow staring back at me…

What’s going on in that head of straw,

Grinning with his sewn on maw?

Seeing with unblinking eyes…

Take it from me – a word to the wise.

You can’t trust the rustle of wind in his hair…

In a cornfield maze, you must beware.

Go out there on a sunny day,

Believe me you will lose your way.

It’s a trick the scarecrow loves to play…

A ruse to keep you there all day.

Now, if you dare the cornfield row,

And if you feel you really must go…

I’ve warned you well, and now you know…

Never turn your back on a spooky scarecrow.

OCTPOWRIMO – POEMS – DAY # 27 – SPECTER’S PRAYER

I’m not going with the prompt today. It was to be something whimsical, and about happy endings. As it is coming near to Halloween, my favorite time of year, I wanted to do this one today. 🙂

SPECTER’S PRAYER

Twisting, turning in their graves

Souls want out tonight.

Tangled in their silken shrouds,

No one hears their plight.

A Specter of their former selves,

They claw with bloody nails…

They struggle inside their coffins, dark…

No one hears their wails.

Come closer, you who walk nearby,

Release us from this plane.

Our spirits now just ectoplasm

That death will not lay claim.

Sobbing now, we feel the chill

Of centuries gone by…

Please rescue us, oh mortal ones…

You see…we did not die.

OCTPOWRIMO – POEMS – DAY # 18 – I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOU

Standard

OCTPOWRIMO – POEMS – DAY # 18 – I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOUIMG_20150928_151453

Today we were given a phrase… Things aren’t always what they seem…

Words we could use to give us an idea were … mystery, double life, a person or object

To continue with my Halloween, and spooky theme, for this time of the season…I give you this one. I’m saying it is ‘free-verse’ as every word just flowed out…like magic. I think because this is my favorite thing to write about.

Dare you read it?

I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOU

Why can’t you see me?

I never planned on being a Ghost…a Ghost of myself.

Flitting around you, I beg for attention…validation…

I am me…a Soul in transition…pain…

Why won’t you see me? I am here beside you.

You look right through me…like I’m not real.

It’s so hard…so hard…I want to be heard.

I need to know you still think of me…still love me.

I am transformed…not gone, not forgotten, not dismissed or diminished as

A strange sound, a confusing coincident of you know-not-what.

I don’t mean to scare you. Please feel no fear. I need your warmth…your love.

I ache to be near you.

Am I the cold chill you feel when I reach out to touch you?

Yes, it’s me.

Am I the wisp of mist you think you see, from the corner of your eye?

Yes, it’s me

Am I the moaning sound you think is the wind through the cracks?

Yes, it’s me.

I’m screaming out to you. I have been here all along.

I have not forgotten you. I give you signs…

Give me a sign that you still care…that you recognize that sudden small flash of memory.

Yes, it’s me, recognizing you in that moment.

I had to leave this life, this mortal realm.

It wasn’t my choice, you see. Please believe me…believe in me,

As I am still here with you…as I am.

I live in your heart, in your thoughts…I am still me, loving you, with all my Soul.

Am I the silence, when you sense that you’re being watched…yes, it’s me…I am near.

Yes, it’s me…still loving you with all my Soul…I am me…

I am the Ghost beside you…
