Macabre...A Haunting in an Haunted House...Scary

Sometimes I just have to break away from the every day and write something fun, something scary, something new, about someone who has turned blue.

Macabre...A Haunting

Macabre...A Haunting

Come a little nearer, my Dear, I’d like to see you
If I may, if only I could.
I’d like to have a little word with you
If you don’t mind, if you please.
Over here in the shade,
Over here
Under the apple tree
In the deep and murky shadows
Where the late sunshine falls sleepy
In the mid-afternoons.
Over here where the cool evening
Touches softly between the trees
And the flashing breeze.

Can You See Me Now

Can you see me now, My Dear?
Can you hear me?
The stories here are very old
You know,
Very old and told only
By fathers to sons,
By mother’s to their young,
And so it goes…It’s in the notes
The whispers hum.
Can you hear it now
My Dear?
It’s really very sweet
When one comes
To know the way of it
When one finally
Gets a feel for the old house.

Before Time Slipped Away From You

Did you know
That sometimes
When you leave a place
A little sliver goes with you,
And a little sliver
Of you stays

In the corners, and the hallways,
Up in the rafters,
And down in the dark, dark basement.
It’s as if you were always here,
You know.
As if
You never left at all.
You see
Your thoughts, your dreams
Still alive in the eves
And under the bed springs,
Still alive from the days
Before time slipped away from you,

Robbed You of Your Youth

Robbed you
Of your youth.

Oh my little one,
My darling one dear
The things we have forgotten
In the mist of our days.
The things we have forgotten in the fog
And the haze

Where we hide from the light,
Where we
Hid our dreams away
Refusing to see
The pictures on the walls
As they are.

Refusing to See Ourselves As We Are

Refusing to see ourselves
As we are,

Thinking everyone gone mad,
As we become dizzy in our time,
Dizzy in our crimes,

Standing in clear view
Of those who cannot see you
And wondering why
With only these little
Whittled words
Carved on a cold piece of rock
To be remembered by.
