Haunting

I felt the air cool,
around half past ten.
I heard little voices
laughing in the other
room. I called out..
put the tv station
on pause.. got up from
my seat, opened the
door...called out to
see if any one was
there...

A ghostly aura hit
me between the blades
of my frozen shoulder.
H-el-lo? I tried once
more. I could sense
my feet sticking to
the lounge floor..
I must have been
mistaken.. takin
the weight off my
feet. The door shut.
My heart missed
a beat. Ten minutes
passed when again
I heard this voice,
little girl laugh-
ing..as she did
before. I felt
a cold chill
severe the cord
to my spine, noises
of mystery things
going bump..jump?
I packed away my
laptop, startin
singin nervously
out loud. Turned
off the lights
retired to bed,
burying my neck
far below the
crumpled pillow,
where upon I
rested my troubled
head. Lights out,
all is quiet..did
I? Was I imagining
all this.. I know
we have a ghost,
not seen her for a
while, things go
from every day
normaility..
last night I
didn't imagine
it, I heard a
small child
laughing.. I
did.

I imagine your house, due to it's age, would have a couple of ghosts.

Scary but at least she's laughing. She'll mean no harm.

I used to have one for years. Followed me from house to house. I haven't felt it around for years now.
