this haunted past

Full-bodied apparition
Screaming across rooms
Wasting space in
Splintered wood
Pitched knots
Eat time

Transparent mists tangle
Opaque shadows
Watched by silhouettes
Sucked out of mud

Flickering flames
Out of nowhere
In murdered darkness
Stretched necks
And slippery red floors

This haunted past
Is my presently lived
One disembodied moan
At a time
