2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge

Write a scary poem.

Creaking hinges start the chill

Surely it’s no one thinking ill

Or thoughts of vicious harm

Surely no cause to be alarmed

But then a louder noise is heard

My bedroom door opens a third

Coming around the wooden frame

A vision of Hitchcock fame

Birds, and birds, too many to count

They flutter in, a huge amount

Swooping down in malevolent acts

I try to hide under quilted wraps

They land and peck and tear the toile

I’m helpless under the thin veil

I start to scream to anyone near

They don’t come hearing my fear

There seems to be no escape

As my body shivers and shakes

The black ravens win the night

I lay there dead, a bloody sight.
