Ghosts

When the wind picks up and the temperature drops down-

When harvest is gathered and leaves turn and fall-

When the daylight fades and the darkness waxes strong-

That’s when the ghosts plague us all.

 

We are all haunted by our own ghostly ghouls:

Haunted by the apparitions of our troubled souls.

Haunted by the poltergeists of our traumas.

Haunted by the phantoms of our past.

 

October is full of monsters of our own making.

As the light and dark blur-

As the veil thins-

And our spirits seek release from our repressed minds.

All the evils we keep buried arise-

And we become victim to the demons we kept buried inside.
