Are these the sort of things you like, my dear?
the stories and the rhymes that make you shake?
are you the sort who seeks darkness and fear?
I surely hope you are, for your own sake.


In here you'll meet the fear who has a face,
in here you'll feel the cold under your bed,
In here the childhood terrors have a space,
And bedsheets are all weaved of spiders' thread.


So, gather one and all who relish fear,
and gather those who savour grim good times,
find your peace and gladness walking here,
in the Never Told Nursery Rhymes.

These are a few grim little rhymes of my own invention, although I'm sure many of you have noticed that quite a few have outside inspiration. Some of them are meant to be scary, some of them are just meant to have an enjoyable atmosphere, but hopefully at least a few will tickle your fancy.  I just want to thank you all
for your support as it means alot. And a special shoutout to @StJoey77 and @FlukeAuriola for being the best of friends to me.

Some of the rhyme was a bit child-like and I think you over relied on the shock factor of the last couplet so you didn't focus on making the poem as a whole good, or making me truly fear the Nocturn Hag

this reminds me of Coraline's other-mother, doesn't it ???
                              
                              when you think about it, you can see the resemblance. 
                              
                              "run away to mother's arms," 
                              
                              but, are you running to your actual mothers arms, or the other mother's long, thin and bony ones?
