Spirits Don't Make Noise

- for Halloween -

Spirits don’t make any noise if they don’t want to.
Especially evil spirits.

That crack you hear behind you isn’t a spirit,
That snap you hear in front of you isn’t a spirit.
The evil that will get you is silent, it stays hidden until it can jump!
You don’t know it’s there until it’s too late.

Evil spirits live in the ground,
They come up through your car tires,
Up through the foundation of your house,
They float in the water of your pool,
Rustle the leaves on the ground,
Squeeze your running shoes,
Vibrates up the legs of your chair,
Meld through wood and metal,
Through bone and flesh.

Fear that wells up from the ground,
It is the evil spirit,
It grabs your feet,
Crawls up your legs,
Into the pit of your stomach,
It is inside. It is inside your heart now,
Spirits do have a voice… yours.
And it screams to come out.
