She rubbished warnings about the mystical fields being haunted. Tonight she decided to go there to find out for herself…
Confined to home due to the lockdown, Samir had ample time at hand. Staying alone, Netflix had become his best friend.
That night he watched a horror movie. Though a brave heart, this particular movie left him terrified. Cursing himself for watching it, he went to bed. The scenes from the film kept haunting him before he finally dozed off.
He saw a hooded faceless lady walk through the wall and give him a rose. There was something so sinister about her smile. Sweating profusely, he woke up with a start. Relieved that it was just his hallucination and a bad dream, he turned to go back to sleep.
And then, he saw it…
Paralysed with fear, he could hear his heart hammer against his chest. He tried to scream but his voice choked within. A spine tingling sensation began to creep up as he began gasping for breath.
For next to him on the bed lay a red rose…
ghoulish nocturnal fetish
caustic whimpers stab
eerie silhouettes emerge

Clad in a shadowed white
she walked through the closed door
for a midnight sojourn.
Her eerie silence echoed
jolting me abruptly from my slumber.
Sweat trickled down my brow
awakening me to a chilling fear
weird shrills pierced the dark hollow of the night
the nocturnal silhouette gifted me a red rose
numbing my senses in a haunting web.
The next morning,
I rubbished the incident
as a nightmarish hallucination,
but as I turned over
there lay a red rose next to me!
Grey clouds cast a net around the woods
dusk descends with a misty cloak
silhouettes of the trees pervades over the moon
menacing winds augur an eerie tone
birds flee ,sensing an unearthly warning
howls of the wild beasts echo
darkness manifests with an evil spew
ghostly shadows rasp in savage squeals
the sinister red eyed monster haunts
with fangs and claws waiting to strike.
The eyes shut tight in fright,
droplets of sweat trickle down,
the heart thuds wildly,
cold chills run down the spine
besieged by paralyzing terror,
with a piercing scream I run out.
A horror movie is not my pick!

new moon sorcery
the spirits sneak out at night
a star studded night
sneak preview to the Oscars
the award goes to…..
After watching the horror movie at night, I went to the bedroom and froze with fear. Lying there with an evil smile, was the lady in red!

The shadowy ghosts
haunt me on the moonless night
fear clogs the mind
the nightmares overpower sleep
sanity lost and entombed!
