Repost, but relavent as ever.

I am the thing you fear the most,
I’m not a ghoul or Casper the ghost.
Not Bella Lugosi dressed to kill,
Or Karloff meant to give a chill.
'Nor am I “Vlad The Terrible,”
No mask at the Opera do I wear.

And when All Hollow’s Eve is over,
I'm still here and will not go away,
I stay right here with you,
Each and every day.

You cannot put me on a shelf,
I am the Demons within your self!!

©2007/!! Walt Hardester
