This was another look at a twisted/distorted mind, perhaps similar to the mind of "Mary" in "From Out of the Night" but this time in poetry format.
I often find myself borrowing from or becoming inspired from my own work when creating a new piece. This usually happens when the idea won't go away, perhaps because I hadn't worked with it enough - perhaps because I had another way of getting the idea out there.
I debated over whether I should put this "Halloween" poem with the three other Halloween tales in this collection, but decided to let format rule over theme.
