Halloween Poem and Blog Hop Info

Ready for Halloween? I know I am! It is my favorite time of the year. Here's a little poem I wrote as a challenge for a writing group I belong to. The rules were it had to use the word midnight, each line had to increase by one word up to ten then decrease back down to one. The first word also had to be the same as the last word.

Pitch black
Darkness creeps in
I hear a scream
and then something touches me

I begin to shiver and shake
the claws grasp my ankle tighter still
I try to run but I am frozen
My heart pounds against my chest louder and louder
I have to break free from this monster's tight grip

My legs kick out hoping to hit their mark
I scream out but there is no sound
My breath gets caught in my throat
Suddenly the grip begins to loosen
I scramble to get away
Only to quickly realize
There's nothing there
Imagination at
