All Hallows’ Eve

Angels cry
And demons lie.
In your bed
You cover your head
And hope it passes you by.

Dark of night,
You pray for light.
Eyes closed to truth.
Betrayed by youth,
You shiver with fright.

The whispers come.
You bite your thumb.
They turn to screams.
Are those sunbeams?
Just firelight and sounds of drums.

The party’s just begun
And you’re the guest of honor.

I am a voice actor, an artist, a photographer, and a writer, not necessarily in that order. I love animals and the ocean. I have an AA in Fine Arts and a BA in Psychology. I am an observer, a storyteller, a dreamer.
