Straight out of bed - I sat up last night
Awakened by a cry
Or was it just the wind outside
From my lips escaped a sigh
Looking out my window - I couldn't see
Anything - but the moon
Just darkness howling - night winds blowing
And shadows dancing in my room.
I leaned my head against the glass
To find it very cold
Moist with drops of nighttime tears
Tears that fall from young & old.
I crawled back into bed at last
And laid there feeling all alone
That's when I knew the cry I'd heard
Had been my very own........

Sounds good for Halloween-very freaky! And sad to-there are many different ways to look at it. The first time, it scared me, and the second time, I realized it could be taken a totally different way...

I've often felt this way, and you've captured the exact atmosphere to a T. Great work
