Tiptoeing inside an entrance that held
closed mysteries of a slain clan,
the draped photographs yielded not
to candelabras of a shadowed night.
I ran up the steps while timbre of my heels
echoed like a thunder roll... the moon shook
and trees quivered like ghouls;
the windows banged!
And the door reeked of odor around a wall,
sipping the marrow of rancid air and hindering
my exit into yet another darker room,
squeaking heavily beside my falling knees.
Interior bleakness brought more freeze
as the tendrils of cobwebs plucked red moulds
dripping like spurts of blood...
I turned to leave: my skirt rushing away
from the ancient house and its macabre view.
While glancing at the ruined structure
from a fading distance, tall grasses
seemed to blink: my disheveled hair
running with rakes of forbidden clouds
meshed by leaves as I pant, dash, escape
into the thick fog without a candle in the mist.
