and it stared right at me.
was just a child.
It’s eyes and mouth were open in horror.
When I took a step around the darkness of the corner
I came closer to it.
The sight shocked me into despair.
I felt cold.
I felt numb.
I don’t know why
but I was propelled to chase him.
But it ran off screaming another screeching yell,
and it disappeared into the woods.
Oh my heart!
Oh my nerves!
Never before had I been so shaken.
But my heart wasn’t pounding.
And I wasn’t sweating.
Putting my hand over my chest I felt nothing but air.
It was then that I looked over and noticed a mirror,
and the ghost staring back at me.
