Creepy Poem by Irene Latham

Okay, all my writer-friends, this poem is for you!


Creepy Poem

This poem
startles
you awake
at 4 a.m.,

it slithers
and scurries,
it goosepimples
your skin.

It haunts
and it taunts
until you
give in –

so grab
some paper,
pick up
your pen.

The only
way to light
a fearsome night


is to write!

- Irene Latham

  2. Wonderful to think about the light this way, Irene. Our students have a 'light' ceremony in December and this would be perfect for that too, a new way of 'seeing'.
