A Haunted House Poem by s.zaynab kamoonpury

A Haunted House

Rating: 5.0

I imagine any haunted house to have:
Creaking stairways
Whispering blinds
Creaking doorways
Blood-curdling sounds

Spooky cob-webs
Ominous darkness
Ghastly shadows
Dreadful loneliness

Spine tingling shrieks
Owls hooting
Things that make
Your skin crawl

An eerie silence
yet squeaky rats
A threatening suspense
with fluttering bats.

Thus a place crawling with,
oversized gnats
scurrying brats
and all kinds of scary things haunting about
except for scaredy-cats!
YIKES, I'M ALREADY SCARED.! <img src='/s/images/smile/shock.gif'>

All the ingredients that make a haunted house are there in this poem! The play of jingling words makes it a pleasurable read! Of course it will leave one quite scared! Great write Zaynub! I invite you to read my poem The Eerie Little House, as and when you get time!

I love your Haunted House, it's so wonderfully creepy. I will be back to read this, especially near Halloween.

Ghostly shadows and loneliness we see and we feel. A place crawling with beauty of hope is definitely an interesting hope. Loveliness is whispering with beauty of expression. This poem is very brilliantly penned...10

Your well penned descriptive poem certainly provided a chill. I couldn't suppress a shudder as I was reading and of course, I totally agree with your last two sentences. I am a total coward at heart and the last thing I'd want to do is stay in a haunted house.10+

Zaynab, your poem has chilled me to the bones. It has resurrected some memories of a house that a friend used to live in that was allegedly haunted. Because various professionals were not able to locate the source of screeching sounds emanating from the attic, his parents finally called in their priest. Every one, including the priest, had heard the sounds. Once the priest sprinkled holy water in the vicinity, the sounds mysteriously vanished. I think I'm going to write a poem about that. Thank you for the inspiration.

Wow! It sounds like Coleridge's poem and his theory of willing suspension of disbelief.
