that spine-tingling you’re feeling
that intense fear, shock and/or disgust
it feels real, doesn’t it
it digs into you deep
so you’re breathing heavy
and shallower
and oh so much quieter
straining your ears harder
you believe
death is imminent

it’s in your head, love
there are no bogeymen
no one is whispering
creeping around in cool mists
getting all up in your face
hissing in your ears
chilling you to the bone
it’s your nerves fabricating this
and a hell of an imagination
i’m laughing at you….

wait. did you see that? what was that? did you hear that?



PSYCH! Just kidding… πŸ˜‰

  1. The image you used is relevant in other ways for me. Today, we celebrate the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, and one of his teachings are summarised in pics saying “Do not see, hear or speak evil.” I find this pic relevant because we celebrate ghosts, while horror and crime is all around us every day.

    Thank you, Susi!
