You must not go into the garden, my child, especially on this night
For I know you are being stalked by one of the undead
I have seen him in the shadows, stalking you, so to earthly life you must hold on very tight
To get away from this demon you must stay one step ahead.

So my child, please take heed from an old woman such as I
Stay away from the garden, for this is where he watches you and waits
Please, my child, on this old woman's advice you can rely
Stay away from the garden, so you don't submit yourself to a desolate fate.

If you really look in the shadows you can see his eyes as they glow red
In the garden, the silence of everything will give you a sense of irrational fear
He even obtains the power, if he wanted to, to lure you to his bed
So child, from him stay away, steer clear.

You don't want to have the same fate as he, always roaming at night looking for fresh prey
Always lurking in the shadows and darkness, watching the ones you choose as victims
He will try and teach you horrid things, even lie to you to make you stay
He will try anything, he will even go out on a limb.

So child, stay away from the garden and as I said especially on this night
You are so young and beautiful to be exposed to the darkness of the undead
Cling to this life, my child, hold on very tight
So stay away from the garden after everything done and said.

Good title
I liked the title of this piece. It caught my attention to read the rest. I don't know if this isn't more flash rather than horror, but I did like the image of a motherly figure giving matter-of-fact advice on the horror in the garden stalking the young woman. It also looks as if this might have started out as a poem and then grew into this short.
