Whispers on the Wind
by D. M. Dale

As I lay here at night, in the soft pale moonlight
I hear from outside the wall,
The gusts, rapid and swift
The sound of your phantom call.

I think, wondering, waiting-
Is it my mind mistaking
The cold whipping wind
Which upon ride your whispers to me

Cemetery Spiral Waltz
by Jessica Leininger

Old names break into pieces
Somewhere along the timeline

Like handmade pottery
Thrown at the ground

Or at the walls, or at the window
Or onto the ceiling, caught in the skylight

Thrown up

Bewitched
by Tammy Darby

There was no choice except to lie about the drug use though everyone in town knew the truth. He was a heavy cranker, a tweaker and tried to keep it secret then the inevitable came, long under drug-induced strain, its parts wearing out, his heart started failing.

He had done the drug for a long time and did a good job of hiding it from most of the people in town until his best friend revealed his habit to a person close to him.

At first, he tried to explain it away by telling everyone it was a disorder ran in his family but those that did the white powder lines with him just laughed. They knew why he was having problems with his heart and soon they would be too. But the damage was done and there were no stories or excuses he could use to cover his operations and hospital stays anymore and soon the whole town knew what he was. He had hidden the instances of violence against women and kept the cops at bay by snitching when he had a little useable information and they cut him a little slack for his efforts.

But everything had changed. He became thin, gaunt and black blue circles appeared underneath his eyes, his hair fell out and he became an old man what seemed like overnight. Afraid, and rightly so, he wondered if this was the price he paid for his treacherous behavior. For the lies, he told her, the promises he broke and the damage he inflicted because of his greed. For the lives, he had destroyed from his past.

He could not shake these perceptions that tortured him night and day sitting in the back of his brain like a tightening knot that refused to be expelled. It weighed heavy on his heart and more so in his mind until his thoughts turned inward and outward and twisted like snakes. Then he remembered the last words she spoke; the crying and chills ran through his body, he began to violently tremble and his breathing quickened with the memory of her.

Some Say That Ever ‘Gainst That Season Comes (Hamlet, Act I, Scene I) -
by William Shakespeare

Marcellus to Horatio and Bernardo, after seeing the Ghost,

Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,
This bird of dawning singeth all night long;
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow'd and so gracious is the time.

I Am a Ghost, a Soul Without a Form
by Oscar Auliq-Ice

I am a ghost, a spirit of the ages,
A phantom figure that never fades,
A memory of the ones who came before,
A whisper of the past that lingers more.

I haunt the halls of ancient ruins,
And wander through abandoned tombs,
I'm the echo of a voice long gone,
The distant notes of a forgotten song.

I Am a Ghost, a Haunting Soul
by Oscar Auliq-Ice

I am a ghost, a whispering shade,
A fleeting memory that's never quite laid,
A wisp of smoke that dances in the night,
A gentle breeze that carries out of sight.

I haunt the halls of ancient castles,
My presence felt in eerie cackles,
I wander through the forest's mist,
A haunting presence you can't resist.

ShadowLands
by Tammy Darby

Why do some choose to live in obscurity between two worlds
Declining the existence of humanity and the laws of man
Moving about quietly in the shades of humans in the way of haints
Appearing suddenly of fear there is no trace
When the stealth night with its strength
Defeats the grandeur of the golden day

Did they choose this life or was it forced upon them
Has the harsh business of living crafted them this way
Who can say why they revel in the somber songs of gloom
