By DJ Tyrer
What lurks unseen
Across hidden veil divide
Realm of dead, lost souls
Concealed from mortal sight?
Pining lovers, vengeful haters
Hungry ghosts yearning for matter
Things that have quite forgotten
What it was to be human…
Around us, beside us
Perhaps even inside us
But, never touching, connecting
Near, yet far apart.
Till one night each year
The fabric of reality thins
Loosens, slips aside, allowing them
To draw back the veil:
Returning to see loved ones
To complete unfinished business
To haunt and horrify
Or, just join in Hallowe’en fun.
