Stuck in the hallway, shouting at ghosts.

STUCK IN THE HALLWAY
SHOUTING AT GHOSTS
FEROCIOUS MIST IS RISING
AND I AM IN A FEAR UTTERLY AND THE MOST.

COME CLOSE TO SEE RECKLESS SHADOWS
THAT PLAY EAGER ROLES WITHOUT POSSIBILITY TO REPEAT,
WHISPER TO THE AIR LIMITLESS WORDS
WITH MEMORY OF LIFE THAT LONG AGO BRIGHTLY LIT....

I ACTUALLY WROTE TWO STROPHES.
MYSTERIOUSLY-REALISTIC CONTENTS ARE THE MOST CHALENGING FOR MY SPIRIT.

They don't come single they come in hosts,
They block the entrance,so you can't escape

All staring there as pale as Ghosts,
Dark shadowed eyes and wearing capes

Tired of being their patient host
Listening to their screeching all night
Flustered and frustrated I'm ready to fight

Guess I'm horrible at this! laugh

Thanks folks, let's keep it going.
Rhyme is not a requisite for this, no limitations.

I did not invite them and did not interfere with their aspirations

Gligeen
Until they set upon me, with their hungry need to haunt.

Hey, you scarry Ghosts
You don't fool me at all
You are just an invisible scarecrow
Placed outside the cemetery
To scare your own shadows
Might as well go back
Into your spotlights and rest
Gligeen
But they refuse what I suggest, and I realize 'their haunting's a request to sing my song, so they may sleep.
