Ghosts   

sitting in the basement

by herself .........

...........she talks out loud............

 
startled by the sound of the human voice
cutting the darkness

she listens

she is watching CNN to 
make opinions

her words, her thoughts
come back as stones hanging on dust
(like virus)
floating and catching her breath

                      she wasn't thinking

                                        she talked out loud
                                                 
                                                         no one is there.

but ghosts.

I do think they hear us, they listen....
observe...they are there.
I experienced one once...face to face for about 30 seconds....I was too surprised to speak, and she didn't either....but the look in her eye was of someone troubled... I regret that I did not speak.

Talking out loud, no one to listen except ghosts. That's interesting. Often when we see a person talking to themselves we assume they're crazy. Maybe they just consider themselves as their own best friend and dnjoy talking without another opinion to interfere lol. But I'd never want to see a ghost, talk about creepy!

You are welcome! No worries, I talk to myself sometimes too... when no one's around though :)
I would like to believe in ghosts, I appreciate the concept.
Although this particular Ghost sounds a little lonely.
Because there is more than enough poor news these days, perhaps if she switched to a different channel it might cheer her up
Then again it is possible ghosts just enjoy bad news??? and she couldn't be any happier!
An interview with a ghost might help clear up these burning questions

This one goes beyond the idea of just ghosts for me....it speaks to me of loneliness. To sit in your basement watching TV and be startled by the sound of your own voice tells me that conversation and companionship has deserted her for some time. She is a ghost in a living reality. An interesting piece, Mr. Noodle. Reads much more than just a Halloween contribution to me. ⚘

A brief and gripping narrative of a solitary figure, alone but for oneself, lonely (buried) in a basement. Yearning for a human voice, exchange of thoughts, a few words. Perhaps even for a stray ghostly visitor if there be none human. Loneliness often becomes a shroud.
