I’m going through the Smokey Mountains,
Somewhere in Tennessee,
All by myself,
Yup only me.
This place is dark and empty,
And I swear,
The Lord Almighty could come to here,
And I would mistake him for Lucifer,
Here to help promote fear.
Picturing what’s waiting,
On the other side,
Helps me to,
Endure the eerie ride.
A monster awaits me,
Behind that tree,
Any moment now,
It will reach out and grab me.
While I wind my way,
Around each bend,
Thoughts such as this,
Occupy my head,
And even though it’s not that likely,
These monsters want me dead.
These roads are vacant,
No matter what others are on my same path,
There’s not even one street lamp in sight,
And I wonder,
Do they too,
Imagine a monster’s wrath?
These terrifying mountain roads,
Mile after endless mile,
They are so terrorizing,
While I’m passing through here,
There’s nothing that would,
Entice a smile.
Any and every,
Creepy tale I’ve ever heard,
They no longer seem absurd,
The one of alien abduction especially,
Has me right now in a most fearsome reverie.
Evil sorceresses and sorcerers,
Practicing their darkened magic,
Oh I hope that I am wrong,
For I imagine a baker’s dozen,
Waiting on a scapegoat to hijack.
Scary movie scenes reel through my mind,
Hauntings and gore and demonic possessions,
These horrors have always horrified me,
But never until now did I think,
That maybe they could become reality.
Up ahead I see a shadow person,
This nightmare can worsen,
So I turn up my speaker volume,
Hoping to be distracted,
And pray for the demons,
To be extracted.
