Spectrum

Many a shifty shade
drifts about unseen
in spectral promenade
in the spaces in between.

Hiding in the corner
and in between the walls
and behind all the furniture
and down the empty halls.

But if you’re idly dozing,
you may get quite the fright
of such a spirit posing
seemingly in plain sight.

And though you try best as you can
you may not get to sleep again…


Haunting

I couldn’t believe that sight.
My skin’s as white as a pall;
it gave me such a fright.

It almost seemed a trick of the light
save for the shadows on the wall.
I couldn’t believe that sight.

Ghosts, goblins, and a wight
strolling boldly with visible gall.
It gave me such a fright.

I followed and watched their evening rite -
I couldn’t resist that phantom call.
I couldn’t believe that sight.

And as the ceremony reached its height
their voices shook the very walls.
It gave me such a fright.

I hear their revelry each night
the echos of their spectral ball.
I couldn’t believe that sight;
it gave me such a fright.
