Ghost in the Night

Creeping silently down the hall

ghost in the night

Slithering across each and every wall

Looking for my victim of the night

Needing to get him in my sight

Sent here by the devil himself

To fail at this, I’ll be expelled

Lurching outside his chamber door

Restlessly waiting evermore

For the perfect time to strike

Just to scare him, for one more night

  3. Like this one Susan. I think the comma after “each” spoils the flow. I like the Poe reference too 🙂
