Casper The Unfriendly Ghost

Welcome to your new home! 
Tucked away in this lovely town of harmony
where tourists visit often
and our bears wander in society!
Please, make yourselves comfortable
feel free to settle in
should you have any questions
my numbers on this napkin.

Charming place
-cheap too!
We certainly lucked out
I knew I could count on you!

We hugged, laughed
unpacked our things
arranged furniture 
and prepared for the evening.

The excitement beginning 
our new life was real
yet a heavy air lurking 
was strong and surreal.
What felt like walking through fog 
congested by malice energy
I chose to ignore 
for the sake of my sanity.

Months had passed 
strength indeed-spirit grew.
Doors constantly slamming shut
items falling over 
a good night sleep-next to none.
Anxious nights I spent awake
until this spirits final outbreak.

Alone at home on a winters night
I sat anxious and afraid.
3AM on the couch
watching the clock 
slowly tick away.
It was then I heard-above my head 
footsteps sluggishly dragging.
Loud and evident 
across our bedroom
toward the hall-coming at me! 
Could this be an intruder-I thought?
Or maybe a ghost?
The sound is too real 
for me to sit and diagnose!

Out the door-in a hurry
I certainly did not stay to see
Off and away in my vehicle
felt safest to me.

Tired and terrified 
I began to ask questions
who is this spirit 
why hasn't it gone to heaven?
My husband gave-way
putting my "sanity" at bay- knowing all along.

HE- an anger charged blood 
in a flowing stream of liquor
set forth a determined man.
Gripping his gun with tears in hand
to keep his children
in lieu of division.
Rise to fail 
he would not stand
surrounded by sirens 
-Our Home-
belted in confinement 
he would not let them go.
Until his last shot
until his final blow.

Thereafter-we found a new home
no longer did I stay 
in the shadow of- He
who took his own life
who dwells the house of dismay.
The house of sadness
the house- He lays.

This was quite disturbing, Kimberly! And well executed, "Could this be an intruder I thought? Or maybe a ghost? The sound is too real for me to sit and diagnose!" ... I especially liked this part ... investigation might lead to strangulation though! I've never had paranormal experiences, in this way, but I've had many demonic dreams in the past, so I don't doubt your authenticity. There is much we don't know, or can't comprehend.
