21) Halloween or Horror Ballad

In a cryptic ballad
You find yourself alone
Twisted and demented
The story is to go

If you wish to enter
Then do as you will
Just stay wary of the real
Before it is surreal

Player Comments

First of all, this was a reasonable length, and spelling was not an issue. The plot was also reasonably interesting.

However, the poetry itself was lacking. The meter (pattern of line-length) was all over the place, and there was no consistent rhyming pattern. Writing poetry can be difficult unless you have a knack for it: I recommend you read the other ballad submitted in the contest by Romulus to get a feel for what really good poetry sounds like.
