Let’s just call it a game of fate
you know curiosity has its own bait
few years ago, a vision would appear
when the day would begin to get dark
thinking it was just another prank
until it became a customary site
and I would go all too white
an appearance so eerie, hard to define
I wondered was it some folly of mine
for Its icy eyes followed wherever I went
prying how and where my time was spent
they said fear has a strange smell
with time my horror of it would dispel
I would casually wait for image to emerge
both haunting and hunted’s fears got merge
to all the Gothic tales it was just nothing
but a blot as haunted preyed on haunting.

All I can say is that I so much enjoy, and look forward to your comments.
We’ll figure it out.
We’ll improvise, adapt, and overcome!!
Sorry, I slipped back into my former military life there.
It’s ok I’ve been a strict high school teacher, let’s move to another chapter and make a note of it ! I guess when the traffic of comments increases on W.P some comments go in spam, this is my observation.
So…thankfully, this made it through. This darned WP world is certainly not perfect.
As long as the words flow by some means…
It’s all good.
