A poem for the Halloween season – or for when the midnight has escaped with the moon…

Not scary, just slightly…eerie. A deadly sweet lullaby.

Sweet Deadly Lullaby

A soft lowly eerie lullaby did play
ever so sweetly into the midnight…

Its tunes strumming the beats of my heart
and tickling the faucets of my eyes.

Such a haunting lovely tune,
that it whispered grave secrets into my ears,
only the ones that the dead
keep down below…

Song of the nigh,
song of those who passed by,
a lovely tune,
such an eerie little lovely
but deadly lullaby.

Such verse,
the words did converse,
that only for one second,
did it stir those who were asleep,
so quiet,
so peaceful to those
fast asleep.

Asleep to those who were weery,
the tunes did ache out,
to those who were dreary.

Such a haunting lovely tune
that it whispered grave secrets into my ears,
only the ones that the dead
keep down below…

so sweet,
so quiet,
but it did converse,
oh sweet lullaby,

deadly little quiet lullaby.
