THE HAUNTED HOUSE



Would you take the dare to
spend the night in an old house?
A house rumored to be haunted.
One with old furniture, dark hallways,
and creaky sounds.
I would.
I would lie on the bed with
my eyes open all night,
waiting for ghosts,
listening to the sounds
of an old house.
Who knows?
Maybe a spirit or two would appear.
Or maybe a wind would move the
curtains in a room with locked
windows and doors.
Would a dead body show up in the morning?
I’ll be waiting.
