“Fright Night” — Cathy Chen ’19

In the darkness the children are screaming,
At the carnival of the masquerade.
With the grimaces and their color grayed,
Their appearances aren’t really pleasing.
Masked monsters all appear with a gleaming,
Then dim out into the night, thus they fade.
Leave us perplexed about the truth yet strayed,
Nothing persuades me that I’m not daydreaming.
I see your doubts about this fantasy,
But the fear in your eyes were plain and real,
The hands I held were frozen and trembled.
That turned the horrors into vanity,
I am only sure about how I feel,
Bet you feel the same for this, I gambled.
