                                      . A haunting in our house

                                 .The haunting started years ago.
                       Our children were small but our money was low.
                      We moved in the house in the middle of summer.
                              It was so hot the heat was a bummer.
                            Our daughter was the one that felt it first.
                       The boys were next they woke up with a thirst.
                  They went to the bathroom and heard their sister scream.
               She said a man touched her and she thought it was a dream.
                     He was a man who made them think he was a kid.
                          With whatever he said and whatever he did.
                          After that happened I put them all in our bed.
                Thats when we found out about him and why he was dead.
                  He tried to talk and touch our kids while we were asleep.
                  Heard a voice and walked down the hall and took a peep.
                      As I opened the door he saw me and disappeared.
                      Told my husband we gotta move we can't live here.
             After we moved from the house no one ever lived there anymore.
                    They finally tore it down to the dirt and under the floor.
                                                     Teresa Skyles               13-Sep-11
