oh she couldn't be trusted...even all these years later she hounded him

she brought her own heat with her

and her demon eyes

her eyes had been vividly blue green that day that the Autumn leaves fell around her as she swayed away from his porch

forever after whenever he thought of Autumn he began to hum "Autumn Leaves" and old obcure tune his momma sang

but the darkness of Halloween was more the mood

Cool pic.

"Autumn Leaves" isn't that obscure, however. Ever heard Eva Cassidy's version?

sigh Her interpretations and arrangements were just so brilliant. I sang this one myself a few years ago in a voice class, with the pianist (brilliant gal) using this, and zero rehearsal:

Even a halfway decent Eva rendition ALWAYS brings the house down. Every time. Guaranteed.

Can't really think of how to make that song sound sinister, though...

Nah, that wasn't it.
