With the open, naked eye,
Pure death approaches!

Incredibly hollow, kick the bucket long ago
No, whiff nor smell when “THE GHOST” is around.
Abuses the whiteness, in which exists inside these sheets.
It can be the cost and the reason of your overdose in question.

Go ahead and dig your own grave.
I have already commissioned your headstone.
You won’t be remembered,
The aftermath this GHOST creates, will leave you babbling, even in your crate.
This is that whiteness you do not want to feel or taste.

Once he or she was a nobody, is now “The Infamous Ghost!”
The one that lives within your ‘Indian Hollow Walls.’
The Ghost’ leaves heat behind in your room.
It prowls around, leaving you within a near death experience every night.
This' ghost left behind will wreak havoc on your soul,
Shh! Listen to your walls, they speak quite a bit. 
Once you find yourself with broken wind, and watery eyes.
Do not think this is your maker in the process.
‘The Ghost’ with eyes so potent compels a numbing stare!

If there really is such a thing as reincarnation,
Then you had better think that this ghost was a ghost in its own past life.
‘The Ghost’ can have you breathing out tears so intense.
Leveling your entire room, with a moat surrounding your bedded kingdom.
Not even your frightened watery dripping eyes will salvage your soul.
Nothing will come in handy before you die.
‘The Ghost’ will incinerate on your obituary.
                 … It will read…

“There is nothing to Fear but Fear itself! “Said: Franklin D. Roosevelt!”
That, and the fear is all this fearless 'Ghost will leave behind.
 It will have you thinking in rational fear.

    Hi Skatie...I enjoyed this read, I love how you delve into the dark side and reminding us of the paradox that is life (has its opposite - death)...a chilling 7, rgds, Tbang

    Hi SKAT! My childhood fear of ghosts left me with a lifelong fascination with the subject. The irony never struck me until I saw it in your lines that "Once he or she was a nobody, is now “The Infamous Ghost!” Yes! Suddenly everyone is paying them the attention they lacked in life. Good insight, and a lovely poem.

    SKAT I was in a store room . No windows , Only one door . Heavy oak wardrobe moved from one wall , Turned and placed itself against the wall opposite ? Haunted by a wardrobe , lol Great poem

    SKAT Such an eerie and spine chilling write. I was captivated all the way through as goosebumps ran up and down my arm. Thanks for the great comment on my Bumblebee poem.

    Among the shadows live's secret allure. If you stay hidden, you might not endure. The ally in back is not meant to dwell. For history will tell us, it's the pathway to hell. Caution and concern can survive the night. When all of hell's angel's decide to take flight. Grim reaper's and peepers have only one plight. They need to stay hidden, for they know it's not right. Peace. :) Ejoyed the inspiring spook SKAT.

    Incredible, I was submerged in this poem, it is a alluring journey I say. I closed my eyes to imagine myself in it and came out with words to describe SKAT...Bidhu

    This was fun to read out loud. I really enjoyed the delivery-I perceived it to be flippant, pointed and emphatic. Very well done.

    A really intense piece, great stuff. This for some reason made me think of The Grateful Dead, and the name of the band. Anyways, thanks for your warm welcome on my poem Relationships, I've posted a couple other poems now as well :).

    first piece of writing that has given me the chills in a long time, love it

    The dead seek revenge, what a cool topic to write about! I don't know about ghosts, but I do think spirits are real. This was an intense read and it made me feel sympathy for the ghost in question, that was wronged time and time again when he was alive. Great work!
