Loud music blaring, older children scaring.
It is the night of all Hallow's eve, when we believe the lies we weave.
Parties continue well into the night, but it is different tonight.
At midnight, there's a sudden hush, and shadow snuffs out the light.

The dark is rising, just another lost warning.
Demons blend in, walking side by side with masked human.
All Hallow's has come, but no one knows to run.
The dark is rising, just a forgotten warning.

The dark snuffs out the light, and shall wreak havoc tonight.
All Hallow's has come, and no one remembers to run.
The dark is rising, and the precious light is falling.
All Hallow's has come, and the massacre, has begun.

I love Halloween :D This reminds me of how when I was little people used to tell me that the demons and creatures came out on Halloween and to be safe you had to dress up like one of them.

:iconcannotevenplz: O_O Awesome. Now, instead of just zombies, I'm also slowly regaining a fear of demons. Great. O_O

Oo sweet. I like it. What I really like is how the end of the poem seems to turn into a chant, or at least, in my perspective. And for some reason, creepy chanting is very Halloween.
Not to mention, people don't ever know if there is someone bad out there during that night because they'll just assume it's costume or something.

Hah, nice one :meow: It really brings Halloween atmosphere. Though I don't feel Halloween very much X3 All these trick ot treat stuff is not popular in Poland. No decorations, no pumpkins, no costumes. We just don't celebrate it :P and many people think it's a bad idea
