How terrifying would it be
to be locked in a room with your nightmare?
Blue exaggerated eyes,
Deceptively bright colors of red and yellow,
Pale chalk coated skin,
I’m not scared,
This isn’t a joke,
Not a single sighting within the last month,
No crooked smiles from tree lines
No croaking screams from next door,
No ‘false’ stories depicting lost children,
Red coated balloons,
yellow gritty ripped raincoat,
parchment boats made with love,
Lost underground in darkness’ lair,
Now there’ll be a reemergence of fright,
No theatre is safe!
This is no laughing matter!
