This is just a little horror poem I wrote off the top of my head. Please comment and tell me what you think.

It was the midnight hour

And I woke with a fright

"What was that noise?"

In the dead of night

 

"Was it a scream or a howl?"

I thought to myself

Or was it just my cat

Playing on the bookshelf

 

I rose out of bed

The air was so cold

Some might wonder

How I was so bold

 

But I wasn't bold

No sir, not at all

A chill up my spine

But I stood tall

 

I opened the door

And stuck my head out

I heard it again

And there was no doubt

 

The moaning was eerie

And so full of sorrow

I wondered to myself

"Will I see tomorrow?"

 

I headed to the living room

With a knot in my gut

"Why am I doing this?

Am I a freaking nut?"

 

And then I saw him

Standing by the fireplace

All dressed in black

A hood covered his face

 

"Who are you?" I said

In a trembling voice

"I am here for you" He said

"And you have no choice"

 

I tried to run

But I was frozen in place

I let out a scream

When he revealed his face

 

But it wasn't a face

In the dim light so dull

When he lifted his hood

All I saw was a skull

 

"You must come with me

And you cannot refuse

I take many souls

And I never lose"

 

In the back of my mind

This demon was right

As I saw his blade

Gleaming in the night

 

The blade sliced my neck

And just like he said

As blood filled the air

I knew I was dead

 

It was the midnight hour

And I woke with a fright

"What was that noise?"

In the dead of night.........

 

End???
