Here’s Your Two Bloody Knocks (A Ghost’s Response)


“If there’s anyone there, make your presence known!”

I hear their all-familiar tone,

interrupting my question session,

of whether I should be, in ascension,


with the others, my greyness grows,

centuries retell me of my woes,

those alive, should not be here,

with their bleeping modern gear,


in my silent opinion, they waste their time,

but for “views”, it’s not a crime,

though, if they wish for my reply,

I’ll leave no part, I’ll make them cry,


in their torch, I am “demon shadow,”

is what they call me, being shallow,

they turn back around, nothing’s there,

but I’ll return, to make them care,


in frustrated grasp, I break planchette,

to make them scream, to make them sweat,

then I get back, to my own quest,

to see if I’m hell’s, or heaven’s guest,


but still they choose to investigate,

to make in me, transparent hate,

thus, on cold spot, I maketh choice,

from other side, I raise my voice,


now they become, the quiet ones,

as I now sing my creepy song,

“you had the chance, to walk away,

 if you want me, then I shall stay!”


One tap for “no”, two for “yes”,

I do the latter, to possess,

here’s your two bloody knocks,

I’m now inside you, tying knots!

  • Comment from author about the poem: With recent posts, and poems that I've written in the past, you may have made the clear conclusion, that I love Samhain/Halloween. Here is another seasonal poem, about a very frustrated ghost, who is hounded by paranormal investigators, and in the end, has simply had enough. Don't get me wrong, I love watching such investigations online, or on TV, and have been on a couple myself, I just thought, that this would be a very interesting scene to paint out poetically. So like the banner picture shows, dim the lights, light a few candles, and I hope that you enjoy reading another spooky poem. As always, please do stay safe everyone.

      Thanks for the read peto, and for your very kind words, they're very appreciated.

      I'm glad that you enjoyed this poem, and I'm also glad that you are fellow "Samhainer/Halloweener" and bless your little sister, wish the "wee witch" a very happy birthday from me on the witching night.

      Thanks again, and I hope that all is well.
