A Haunting

an eerie air
stuffed the room
a spooky corner
by the broom

he saw a shadow
behind the curtain
whose bloodshot eyes
tore his vein

as he stood
around the furnace
to calm his senses 
sooth his nerves

the fire ablaze
with a grotesque face
calling his name
a dark voice came

"Welcome my friend
To the house of Living Dead"
and thud he fell
with a broken head

  1. Whooaaa.. this is so very eerie and intense. I can totally visualize the image of that shadow with 'a grotesque face calling his name.' Love your vivid imagination here. Beautifully executed. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights Anusha and for your constant love and support.

    Lots of love,

  2. He gave in too easily and should have put up a fight. You are supposed to make ghosts work for the rewards as you don't get a second chance.

  3. Ouch! And ooh..a wonderful ghost story - also love 'a spooky corner by the broom' - a superb image and line..

  4. Hahaha...loed the playfulness of your ghostly offering :DXXX
