~ I've often wondered what it would be like if this poem were to have an alternate ending, so I've written one. There is no written rule that states a poem, or a story must end nicely, or even partly nice. When you let your imagination take you away, especially when it is
accompanied by the eeriest season of the year, it's not difficult to come up with what I have.
I hope you enjoy 'the alternative.'
Note: Anyone wishing to read the orginal poem, Fright Night, may do so by scrolling through
