The Clown at Midnight

A permanent midnight
In a house of terror
Hiding in the darkness
A clown waits there

Under the moonlight
His eyes grow brightly
A hideous smile
Curves ever so slightly

The clown at midnight
Is drawing near
He knows your thoughts
And smells your fear

A terrible giggle
Heard under your bed
Outside your door
And inside your head

Icy fingers
Around your throat
You gasp for air
As you begin to choke

The clown at midnight
Has struck once more
Beware of Him
Hes at your door




 Better to die, and sleep
The never-waking sleep, than linger on
And dare to live when the souls life is gone.

Gee Trevor. I was just about ready to shut
down my computer, and go to bed.  LOL
I think I will stay up for awhile.
What an interesting poem to write.
