How quiet without his neighbour anymore
though they had been ill
it was not a shocked when she passed away
strange noises again he heard
to him unsettling because nobody was there
not that he was aware!
Relations came to clear out all her belongings
yet something still remained
nearly a year before the house had been sold
a couple bought the place
glad for the company but certainly not to go in
sensed bad things about to begin!
Always weary of the seemingly nice old lady
neighbours for many years
yet never went into her house too afraid
often could see a man lurking
yet she had never been married that he knew
had left a nefarious residue!
Even the thought of noises he had listened to
made his chest feel very tight
never found out the cause of the loud chants
or emanating screams of terror
called the police who just ignored his concern
made his stomach churn!
After several calls did come to speak with her
but did not go inside
from then on it got worse heard a man’s voice
as if knowing he complained
many nights lay listening in fear of his sanity
and the blasphemous profanity!
His conscience would no longer let him rest
must tell them of the neighbour
knocked on the door wondering what to say
at first there was no reply
then the door opened the old lady stared back
he collapsed with a heart attack!
Only a short time later the couple returned home
aghast to find him deceased
with no idea of dead eyes watching them both
later they entered their house
the door still locked to them all was tranquil
until a presence they could feel!
That night the screams and awful noises began!
