Walking down the old dark street
I saw a shadow looming,
one that looked like no other.
With my heart pounding
I took a step forward,
with a hope to get a closer look,
and get clarity of what it really was;
but as I got nearer,
it started to disappear
slowly into the dark of the night.
Just before it vanished,
it gave me a cold glance;
a shadow with no face on it.
I stood still trembling in fear,
and watched it disappear.
I still remember vividly
how every second went by that night
and it still haunts me to this day;
the faceless shadow that I once saw
on that night in that old dark street.

It’s Halloween and I simply can’t help myself so here’s something a bit spooky I wrote which actually happened to me many years back, hope you enjoy reading it. πŸ™‚

Happy Halloween πŸ‘»

      I really had a blast writting this one since it was based on my real life experience as well with just a twist of words here and there πŸ˜‰πŸ˜…

  1. Oh man. And you gave a step in its direction? You are a brave one.
    Though I’m glad it went about it’s merry way (merry, I hope) and left you alone to remember forever.
    I’m sure ghosts visit.
    Thanks for this story. Glad you’re getting it out of your system by telling it to us.
    Hope the others that visit are kinder. And that they show you their face.
    Be well my sweet. So glad you shared this. XO

    1. Yeah it went it’s merry way and it was a kind one, just didnt have a face thats what got me πŸ˜€
      Glad I finally got it off my system as well, so far the ones I’ve encountered aren’t bad ones I guess they are just lost souls.
