Halloween Is Coming

October 1st.  It must be a day for many things.  But as the night comes to an end, felt like an old friend, I feel Halloween coming on…

Halloween Is Coming
by Michael Romani

In the distance, I hear the drumming
Whispers in darkness, Halloween is coming
It's time to unleash the beast inside our hearts
Ruling in the darkness as light departs

Played out cards that tell the trick of tale
A serpent hisses wishing us all to Hell
Venom drips but cannot release our pain
All pretense at holiness is simply in vain

Riding into the Badlands at sundown
The demon's corruption wears the crown
A river washes a murder's blood away
But, the stench of sin will always stay

Enchained in a necklace of guilt and shame
Clawed out repentance is born in true blame
Quenching my pain in evil's known embrace
Is it a Halloween mask or my own true face?
