In the 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 intellect 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 inside 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 mayhem on your soul,
Shh!  Listen to your walls, they speak quite a routine.  
Once you see yourself with broken wind, and watery eyes. 
Do not believe 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 remember
--- 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 fear
Not even your frightened watery eyes will salvage your soul
Nothing will come in handy before you expire.
‘The Ghost’ will incinerate your obituary.

“There is nothing to Fear but Fear itself! “By Franklin D. Roosevelt!”
That, and the fear is all this fearless 'Ghost will leave behind.
 Everlasting rational fear.

-Happy Halloween-

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 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 :).
