“The Gate”

I was thinking of the Book, “Mexican Gothic” by Silivia Moreno-Garcia while writing this one. It is such an amazingly atmospheric book. I thoroughly loved reading that one.

A ghost

Pretending to be alive

Haunted roads covered in fallen corpses

Hollow winds engulfing the footsteps


Don’t turn around

Keep walking

The whispers will cease

Vines tend to hold on tight

For many passers-by have disappeared

Lost in the fog so dense.

But you, dear ghost, keep walking

Don’t give in

For if you lose sight,  

The gate will be lost too.
