Alone Inside and Out

pitch black

ignore the sound

behind you


the one

the inexplicable


maybe ghosts are real

the shade that is not there

    Nice. I have rated it as Excellent.

  2. Now this reminds me of an experience I had last night. I’m going to write a post about it momentarily.

    The title is interesting. The person could be alone inside his own being, and alone in the World,or he could be alone in the house and also outside.

      Yes, the first one is what I initially intended, but the second one you mentioned is interesting as well. I also meant that the ghost, or shade, can be not a figment of one’s imagination nor in external reality, but just something that is inexplicable.
