I'm running out of time here. Gotta get these in before Halloween.

Terror Rides
My heart is frozen within me, as
terror stampedes across the
bridge toward me,
grinning pumpkin atop
darkened silhouette of evil.
My mind rebels, my
voice refusing to yield to
screams that pile against. 

Seeking a hiding place,
too late --
madness overtakes, then,
Smiling, I turn to face
the inevitable. 

He falters, noticing
sheen of madness in my eyes,
uncertain of what to do
against my absence of fear.

 His body now lies hidden, and
a new terror rides.

Now I come for you.

 Dallas D'Angelo-Gary 08

A tale that sends shivers up and down the spine, and quite apt and timely considering how close we are getting to Halloween. Thank you, Dallas. Love and peace to you,

Chillingly, effectively penned, Dallas. By the title, was thinking you were going to write about carnival rides gone amok. LOL This is even scarier ... well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

AAAAHHHH... the sudden switch here reminds me vividly of my most shocking cinematic moment... The Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie classic, Don't Look Now... when the little figure in the yellow mac turns round and isn't a child but a.... disfigured dwarf! HEEEEEEEEEELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've never forgotten it and nearly freaked out when I saw a picture of me on my honeymoon up in the Swiss Alps, huddled in a corner in the rain in a... yellow mac.... Certainly cooled the temperature a bit back then... as does this now... Chilly... Not sure you really need that "Tis me"... just the "now I come for you" does (it) for me... I'm so outta here.... just look at me go........................................... :)) xx

You slay one demon, and another pops around. And another. And another. And another. Terror rides indeed. Nice one!

The tempo you create adds to the terror. Excellent, as always.

You can feel the eeriness in this. Great Halloween story.

I guess age has finally caught up with me / Halloween just doesn't do it for me anymore . . . Over-hyped holiday . . .

love it---refuse to be afraid--great word pictures, again, Dallas.
