Spooky Season Becomes Her

Halloween is my favorite holiday

It didn’t always used to be

It started when an abusive boyfriend asked me

What’s your favorite holiday?

He was a very Christian boy

The kind who twisted words of faith

To get what he wanted

The kind who could never keep his word

So I said Halloween

Because the day after is All Saints Day

Because I thought a very Christian boy would love that answer

He did

He loved it

He pretended to love me

Until he didn’t

He was not good at keeping his word

But I am good at keeping mine

So Halloween is still my favorite holiday

And

Spooky season has become me
