Unwelcome [socs]

Stream of consciousness Saturday

I never see his ghost,
Just a darker space
Where a shape
May have been.
They say a shade stays
Down in Hades,
Trapped and restless,
Divinity binned.
I should not fear
A haunted spirit near,
When the rules are clear.
And yet… the shapes
Come twisting in the dark.
They whisper, hiss,
Cavort, and mock.
This wretched spectral
Caller feeds
Upon my sleep,
Upon my dreams.
I would wish him peace,
So I may be free.
