A Ghost in the Night

There is this girl
she resides in my dreams
she is quite young
eight or nine it seems

i know not where she is from
nor why she appears
I know not what she wants
or why she is here

she scares me immensely 
for her face is scarred and twisted
she sits in the corner
wanting what? I must of missed it

she wears a little white dress
frilly and pressed
with long dark hair
messy and stressed

I sit frozen in horror
as she sobs in the corner
blood stained tears drop to the floor
i want to bolt for the door, I can't take anymore

I can not help.
I know not what to do
I sit frozen in shock 
right next to you

Our eyes meet, yours is a glare
I dare not move,for I am regretfully aware
she's just cold and lonely, a ghost in the night
wanting assurance, Everything will be alright

This is the first time I've written anything in a couple years. I love this site and the people that visit it. just wanted to do a little something with the upcoming holloween/day of the dead vibe to let everyone know I am in fact still here. this is something ive honestly dealt with and have had several nightmares about. Creepy stuff. Hope you enjoy!
