Oh, was I drawn deeply into your fantastic poem! It held my attention beginning to end and has a high creep factor. My favorite line is "It's dark and cold - so very old - its shadow stains my floor". Raises the creep factor! Is that creepy windy sounds you included? I thought it was coming from a website that I forgot to close out! LOL COOL touch!

Yeah, this is great, simply great. I know I'm a bit late to the review but. I especially like the part about the shadow staining the floor, it's really descriptive and I can see the imagery really well. The only reason why I don't give six stars is probably a personal preference more than anything else. I would have liked to have seen more complicated/sophisticated rhymes specifically multi-syllable like what you did with pox and paradox which I thought was really nice. I don't see a lot of those here and I guess I just want more like it. Again, pretty much just a personal preference though. Great work, I look forward to more.

I love the imagery and the poem. Fiirst impresion , a story poem, which is a little sad, but fits the theme of halloween. The item reads well and needs no suggestion of change. great writing. Mary Ann.

More freakishly fantastical fun from our resident fright-meister, Mr. Kuch, who maintains tight control over rhyme and meter in all five stanzas. Two very small quibbles: 1.) "mantle" in stanza two should be spelled "mantel;" and 2.) the latinate spelling of "daemon" in the final stanza weakens a line where "demon," in its modern, devilish sense, would be more appropriate. (The story of how we have demonized this word over the centuries is a linguistic oddity. The original Greek word, "daimon," actually referred to a helpful spirit, like a guardian-angel. "Daemon" is the latinized transliteration of the older "daimon.")

But pardon my blather. Kuch's masterful alliteration and, yes, the allusion to BOC's rock masterpiece "Don't Fear the Reaper" in the final stanza, make this seasonally-appropriate piece great fun. One more observation: That line "Frigidity's not new to me, for I once had a wife" is as devilishly droll as it is politically incorrect. Ouch!

"The candles blew and then disappeared" - I'm a big fan of Blue Oyster Cult, and I love how the curtains blew instead of the door! Amazing work, as always, and congratulations on your first place ranking. You're an incredibly talented poet and writer.

Amazing. And the beauty is there is an entire other side to that and just a shift in thought is all that's required. I love this from the debts of the valley and the peak of the mountain top. God Bless

I liked your poem. Its scary. I loved the background music that you placed to accompany the poem. I liked your rhymes and descriptions. I liked the end of the poem.

I enjoyed this piece. I found the line about frigidity to be slightly amusing. I sure hope Death does not come this way for me. I'm interested in reading more of your work.
