spooky

spooky poem by steven james humphreys

you never see it coming

on Halloween

never expected its return

something you’ve never seen

nothing you can earn

not of this earth

that’s never been

hovers like a moth

over your head

and then you wonder

when and if you’re gonna be dead

coming out of one ear

and into the other

makes you talk to yourself

makes you wonder

what this nonsense is all about

why this is happening to you

you don’t have a clue

you don’t know what to do

you just have to go with it

it’s all you can do

there’s no escaping

paying your dues

that spooky thing

controlling you.
