I can’t sleep here

I look
into it.

There was 
an accusation.

There was a hot iron and
a burned arm.

of infants. Death of
a wife and mother.

He’s like a stalker
his own house. He

lived here and
followed anyone who
came in.

I know the man killed
the girl. I think he

killed the dead girl.
She was a living person

he was acquitted.

He is dead and refuses
to leave.

He is 
disowned and refuses
to leave.
He suffered terribly

angry guy moved
to the basement.

Pretty private.
It hurts here pretty bad.

His intentions

pretty bad.

I don’t really believe in ghosts

I don’t live in the basement
or go there
at all.

I lay my hands on the

and invite. I am

pretty private but
this needs to be

heard to be 
believed. I don’t

want to live here.
I am

pretty. I am

a living person.

is following.

All about the angry

All about it.
The ghost.
The angry guy,
like a tough guy.

He is always in
the basement
(leave me alone).

Leave. Leave.

It’s a warning. 
a living person.

Leave. Yes.
