The Haunting....(A Tale In 160 Characters)


The Haunting...(A Tale In 160 Characters)
by Pete Marshall

Shivering and scared we would hide in fear
As we watched you glide across the room
And through your face we saw no smile
Whilst midnight songs would play your tune

I'm laughing at Brian's comment because as I was reading this I thought, "Would it kill you to smile once in a while?" Alas, it probably did... :P

I really have gotten behind my friend

It must be late - I read this as an apparition. One you need to hide from

smiles from the Moon

Oh, Pete this is lovely and wonderfully dark. My mind tends to flow in that direction. Just found you on the Undead site. It is much fun to fill them with my darker thoughts. See you there my friend.

I loved this poem. The paranormal has always fascinated me. This piece shows that there are souls that are trapped in an in between state of life and death. One feels sympathy rather than fear. Wonderful.
