I stared out the window,
The maroon moon hung
Like an immortal Goddess
On this sleeping town.
Moments before, the air was filled with screaming;
Inhuman screeching renting the still night air.
Blood splattering, people dying, women shrieking,
Torn limb by limb by the dark demon.
I didn't know what harm would come
While reading from mere book.
The horror of it kept me staring all night.
