Visitation From A Hungry Ghost Comments

Rating: 5.0
It's been several years ago,
When the full moon was bloated
For three nights, it hung low and bright
With a tinge of red on its final aspect

Feed the ghost! It's the only way to be sure! A haunting write, a great description of a shade you have made and an interesting story completes the ghostly coup or should I say soup.

Great poems written by gifted writers are few and far between and deserve a worthy reread. This is one of them and again worthy of five stars. Take care and thank you Thomas

st.8 " Teeth blackened and broken exposed from lips eroded." this made me cringe! I have dental 'issues' also. : ( Among the many lines i've enjoyed: st.10 " With buttocks as flat as this table and chair" st.11 line 4 missing an " I" i believe " Your" grandfather was the ghost's brother? Poor ghost! ! Good enough! (the poem) Entertaining. to MyPoemList bri :) Happy haunting.

Brilliant Thomas a captivating and mesmerizing horror poem. Simply one you don't want to end, dark and gothic imagery delivered in endless dark spades. Your poem is relentless and every fine verse ticks the horror boxes. And your payoff last verse is the stuff of Poe. I read it five times it is that enthralling A full score but worthy of much more for your horror classic. Your best yet I humbly say and well done and thank you. And your pen is horror's sharpest.

This is a good poem for getting into a Halloween mood! Gothic and yet modern. Evidently the ghost knew that the narrator was a respectful person who would honor his ancestor. Because of your thoughtfulness, an unquiet soul was finally quieted. A 10.

this masterpiece of work has got 2 sides; one: the horror form, second: criticism of greediness and wealth.. in the second one we can reach many conclusions such as nature of this short life, what remains and what we lose after our departure..really this is very well penned and poignant, it is rare and unique theme with many fresh poetic imagery..thanks for sharing 10/10 and it goes into my treasure chest

The ghost then stood up with a frightened alert. It was time for him to depart. The gates of were beckoning him For the sanguine moon was becoming dim And the chains that bind rattled a metallic din.

You're living in this house that I built As a matter of fact, your dad inherited it From my brother's estate to whom I bequeathed With much regret to an ingrate Who showed me no respect upon my death and grave.

For this being was far from human His appearance was gruesome A grotesquery of distortions that reeked of consumption.

A knock, at first, was subtle and faint Then became forceful in a fitful shake; That I thought the door might fly off the hinges; Such was the urgency to this demand That I was obliged to invite this unwelcome guest in.

They haunt the living for exaction; A morsel of hospitality that wasn't afforded From their deathbed to a proper burial.
