The Haunting Attempt

The apparition appeared

in the middle of the night

making noise

trying to give a fright

Moving things around

suddenly the woman was awake

looking around

at things about to break

The apparition was suave

wanting her to be his queen

looking at the mess

she began to scream

Stay if you must

haunting this home

but as for me

I choose to be alone

Rules of the house

here is a broom

if you want to stay

clean this room

The apparition was quiet

this was not what he expected

to be a servant

and to be rejected

Leaving the house

vowing never to return

better to haunt alone

a lesson learned
