Halloween Poem: Heads Roll

Halloween pumpkin, Sanok 2012

Halloween Poem and a Pumpkin

With Halloween just around the corner, I think a fun poem is one to put on the menu. I pair this poem with a plate of eyeballs, vampire fangs and gummy worms. Silliness and poetry can be a fun combination for Halloween!

Heads Roll

You said heads are going to roll
And you were right –
A few of them just rolled right by me!

That was two minutes before the
Vampire opened his mouth to
Take a bite of my neighbor’s neck and
My own blood turned cold.

Selene is the Greek Goddess of the Moon. She is the daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia.

Besides, Selene is sister of the Sun-God Helios, and Eos, Goddess of the Dawn.

In classical times, Selene was often identified with Artemis, much as her brother, Helios, was identified with Apollo.

Just as Helios, from his identification with Apollo, is called Phoebus (“bright”), Selene, from her identification with Artemis, is also commonly referred to by the epithet Phoebe (feminine from the name is of Greek origin, it is likely connected to the word selas (σέλας), meaning “light”.

Self Love is amazing

Hello and welcome to a place of feeling like a champion because of how you talk to YOURSELF. Welcome to a feeling of wanting to be the best you can be, regardless of whether someone from the past has tried to hold you back from being that. Here’s to doing more, being more and loving oneself, even if you have been cheated on or hurt in another way in the past. Loving myself is the greatest gift of all, and I hope you love yourself too xo

The Capital

He chose her over me,

As though she was first place and
I was a lonely second –

And now it seems you take the
Last space in my life, outside my
Heart’s walls and miles from my reality.

I realized there is a place for me that
Need only consist of my hands over my
Own heart, settling it and signing it with a
Capital “I” –

And that myself gets the gold star after all.
