Boarded Up!

The pub had been a land mark for centuries

but economic times hit hard.

Listed yet it closed as trade became poor

but a few weeks after closure.

Boarded up on the ground floor for security

hoping to make it vandal free!

 

Though it always had a history of odd events

while a popular venue.

The interior was original and still remained

from the fifteenth century.

Yet reports on going near it had an eery feel

a presence your sanity to steal!

 

A police cruiser came and stopped outside

the building seemed undisturbed.

Though the officers did walk the perimeter

being part of their patrol.

Both looked up to check the upper floor

each confirming a figure they saw!

 

Uncertain of exactly what they had witnessed

now committed to investigate.

Thinking the key to the padlock was required

approaching the entrance.

Concerned finding it open lock on the ground

they’d not heard a sound!

 

Cautiously entering to search the entire place

after deciding it was deserted.

Not a single intruder found within the walls

yet somehow didn’t feel alone.

Glad when finished made sure it was secure

not wanting to go in for more!

 

Before they left had to take another glance

again they saw an image.

Clearer resembling a woman staring down

from the same bedroom.

But as it was there soon no longer in sight

they drove into the night!

 

Dreading the report they’d have to write

logically it couldn’t be right!

 

Ghosts don’t exist! Do they?

 

The Foureyed Poet.
