The Necessity of Haunted Houses

The Necessity of Haunted Houses

A Poem by VennelaMargame
"

Thoughts on why people are fascinated with seeing ghosts.

"

We want the privilege, and why

Shouldn’t we take our turn? Deny

The ghosts of shuttered suburbs all

You like, their company will call.

 

Because we want them here. It breeds

The fetish for the dead. What needs

One think, but “Let me know,

If body stops, can soul still go?”

 

If walls can weep and windows glower,

And Hell is stoked, Heaven’s aflower,

And eyes stare bright through every crack,

We might then trace our spirit’s track.

 

Or so we’d like. It fills us full

Of prickly afterlives, the pull

Into Elysian earths, the dense

Ethereal as our audience.

the dense

Ethereal as our audience.

The closing is the best! I lived and experience the life of living in a haunted house when I was a teenager. It forever changes your perspective on God, the Devil, religion, death, fear, it forever messes with your dreams too. It has made me who I am today. I can't say I'm a better person because of it....maybe more cautious, open-minded, curious.....it's an experience I don't wish on any body.
