A Mere Nightmare

In the darkness of the eerie night,
As I sat by the glow of candlelight,
There came a rustle of leaves to my ear,
And with it arose a pang of fear.

The wind rattled against the windowpane,
With force that could drive any man insane,
The rain poured down with all its might,
The sound of which made my heart go tight.

And all of a sudden in that haunted house,
Where dead from their graves were arouse,
There stood a figure in shimmering white,
I began to tremble at the very sight.

The figure moved towards me with lightening speed,
I felt powerless to pay no heed,
As its bony fingers touched my hand,
I let out a piercing scream and;

I don't know what happened after the scream,
For it turned out to be just a bad dream,
And although it gave me quite a scare,
It was, after all, a mere nightmare!

good effort for a 12 year old! it might make one think of the ramsay bros, but it is far more superior quality than any of their silly movies....anyway, u should post some more of ur recent stuff here if u dont mind...we would all love to see how that 12 year old's talent blossomed! :-)
