Halloween Countdown 2012: Requiem for the House of Never

Posted by M.L. Falconer on 5:22 PM

The Halloween countdown continues.

I've a firm belief that we are shaped by the time of year we are born. Being born in the fall I'm smitten by the colorful falling leaves, the smell of fires shifting on the breeze, the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays, etc. This is the time of the year that I feel most excited to be alive. My roommate has joined in the spirit as well, decking out the house in Halloween fare. I create Halloween soundtracks, jot down ideas for spooky tales, and put on Death Becomes Her or the the old Night Gallery series.

I've never considered myself a poet, though I like how this particular one turned out. This was an assignment in my college poetry class several years ago. The ending needs help but here it is in the rough.


Requiem for the House of Never
Spring-heeled Jack
With a whiskey sour
Ramparts and brambles
Raped by wisteria vines
Murder, Murder most foul
On the back of London’s Hyde
Crickets howl
Through dank recesses of evils’ Ripper
Souls tattered, 
Requiem residence in wistful horror

The Soul Net torn
