Spooky Times Call for a Spooky Poem from Alpha: Cindy Avitia High School ACE Poetry Contest Winner

By Joycat, one of the Poetry Cats helping Contest Mascot Riley with the ACE Poetry Contest

Hi. Joycat here. Reading this great and spooky poem.

Meooow. That lousy virus has made it hard to manage school life and teaching, so only one student from Alpha: Cindy Avitia High School submitted a poem to the ACE Poetry Contest, but it’s a great one. “Curiosity killed the cat,” is an old American saying. “But satisfaction (like reading this great poem) brought them back.”

Check out the winning poem.


By Gisela Villavicencio, Alpha: Cindy Avitia High School

A pitch, black, foggy night at Hallow Lake.
swoosh, swoosh
I feel a gust of air blown right through my hair
And I see
a trail that leads to stairs, but I wouldn’t dare to go in there.
But I wonder what’s in there?
The voices in my head would say
“Go home, don’t go in there!!”
“GO, go on go in there!!”
My thoughts and I were arguing I couldn’t decide, but the
velocity of curiosity drove me inside.
Screams, agony, and pain

My trembling numb body could never go back to reality.

Great poem, Gisela. A spooky treat, and kind of needed.

Stay tuned for more ACE Poetry Contest winners. And, as Riley would say, “Treat yourself to a poem.” We cats would say, “Just take it.”
