Candlelit Eyes

October 25, 2010

My mouth is frozen
In a wicked smile
My eyes are carved
In an eerie glint

And down the street
Are flickering lights
Who's faces I see
Are similar to mine

Screams of horror
Pierce the air
Cackling laughter
Haunts the ears

And around the corner
Are ghouls and monsters
Who seem to age
A year a day

Nothing seems
To ever change
Because in a day of mine
Autumn never leaves

And from where I sit
I observe
These Halloween traditions
Through my candlelit eyes

My mouth is frozen
My eyes are carved
The Jack-o-Lantern's eyes flicker
It's Halloween again.
