words: transparent, haunt, shadow, deception, sinister, repugnant, ghastly, ominous, abode. for my poetry group


An eerie night

as shadows come to life

traveling down a lonely highway

on our sojourn to the lodge

in the country miles away


Out of the shadows appears

an omnious creature I fear

his face was pale and ghastly

as he walked across the highway

our car screeched to a halt

not to kill the already dead

for if dead not to be our fault


This sinister creature of the night

took off his cape in our sight

revealing a transparent silhoette

then off the ground he arose

his face repugnant and old

he asked for help

in a sinister tone

to help him find his abode


Long lost was his home

so the tale he told

a fire destroyed his home

and with it him and his family

he said he must return to it

so he could finally be free

from roaming the earth

and forever haunting


I could not look into his eyes

the evil he could not disguise

I must continue this sojourn

and he continue his


In terror I fled

this deception I read

between the lines

of a sinister ghost

that haunts in the night

giving us a fright


I crossed myself

and said a prayer

looked back to the road

where he had been

and he vanished in thin air

he is out there somewhere

        I Fear!

I love this poem. It he details and the story line are amazing in this piece. Sinister ghost. Sometimes we must be wary of deceitfulness creatures.
