Remnant

Remnant

A Poem by Sarah Hawkinson
"

I've always wanted to believe in ghosts, even as a child, and my logical brain would never allow me. I wish one day to be proved wrong.

"

I imagined a figure in my doorway

Wishing for her to be true

Sensing a story

Something untold

Something forgotten.

I remember the night I explored their territory

Possessive, wanting

Wanting them to reveal what has never been proved.

Cold, touch, scratch

I felt it all within a second

But forgot almost instantly.

I dreamt that night

She visited

In my door, I saw

Her hair a shadow

Translucent

Invisible

Never heard, never seen

I spoke out to her,

What is your story?

She turned

And never returned

I woke that morning,

Remembering that

I do not believe.

I really really like this poem!!!! Its true - we want to be proved wrong and really see one even if noone believes us you know youve seen one and for that reason we do wish, even though i imagine id freak out if i did see a ghost, but the poem is great and the ending lines were perfect!

Creepy. Reminded me of nights on my aunt's allegedly haunted third floor. Very solid though, you were able to convey a subject matter poetically, and establish an ambiance, without spelling anything out loud for the reader.
