September Ghosts

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July 17:  Haunting
“Does something from your past come back to haunt you? Have you heard strange noises or felt haunted in the night? Had bad dreams? Told “ghost” stories? Had a “Bad Penny” moment where it just wouldn’t go away? A memory that lingers and you can’t put your finger on? Exorcise that ghost!”

It haunts my days and oft-times dreams
Horror fades, they say–those not there
Dust and ashes will never be clean
It haunts my days and oft-times dreams
Just yesterday . . . or so it seems
I wonder if we’re truly prepared.
It haunts my days and oft-times dreams
Horror fades, they say–those not there

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Occasional less now I think of old beaus. And those ghosts that don’t speak. The ones who one would think would be visiting angels. Each day, how much can we prepare?

    I’ve done another in ‘that’ series; from a different haunting point of view:
