My newly won job took me far,
Into the nonstop city roar.
Devoid of any village calm,
The soft and breezy swish of palm.
Nostalgia seeped in before it`s time,
I loathed the city in it`s prime .
Work front collegues helped me get,
A shack to rest my cozy the cot.
The house was old,still clean and fit.
A befitting joy to my shrunken pocket.
Reminiscing all my village days
I settled ,for my city dreams.
Sleep occluded my homesick brain,
I turned and tossed in mental pain.
Ticking clock now turned lullaby,
Engulfing me to a stage, very sleepy.
Pluvial nature sloshed the house,
Lightning ushered in rumbling sounds.
An uncanny noise made me vigil,
I stared in to a form ,quite still.
The lighted sky, showed me a girl,
Squatting on my window sill!
Blood oozed from her loathsome teeth,
Fear shrouded up my gifted throat.
With out a second glance at the ghost,
I fainted in to my waiting frozen cot !!
Warbling of the morning birds ,
Soothed me off my nocturnal scenes.
Gathering all my scattered nerves,
I ran out of that haunted house .
