locked up forever

in a shadow stricken house

no memory why


afraid of the light

unworthy of redemption

clinging to old sins


a small sorrow stands

silent behind dark curtains

afraid to look out


sad faceless spirit

misplaced between time's edges

forever haunted


midnight moonlight weighs

down the dust on window sills

silent grains falling


in the dark corners

carefully built towers fall

pride of ghosts laid low


velocity of the moon

wears away small flecks of time

lost in the darkness


starting once again

the why is still forgotten

deep in an old house


being a ghost

is a sketchy

occupation

Haunted stories tell

tales of once upon's gone by—

Ghosts weep in darkness

cattservant's avatar

dark towers toppled

by an errant new moon beam

start over again

KimberlyJolanda's avatar

Illuminated,

shadows chase the thoughts they left—

Memory hauntings

negative

connections haunt

blind eyes

KimberlyJolanda's avatar

Past the veil, they seek

a way to reach the lighter shores—

Hands so blindly reach

cattservant's avatar

on the farthest shore

the blind can see not lost

in life anymore

i wonder what will

happen when the ghosts must face

the light of the sun
