#Story Saturday: Ghosts?

Ghosts?

 

 

if you don’t believe in them, you probably won’t believe my story 

As a young girl around the age of five or six 

I woke up near dawn and saw 

two shadows coming down the hallway 

Two men 

one was tall with an afro who pushed 

a wheelchair of another man 

I watched as they moved across the wall 

but no physical forms materialized 

Frightened, I flung the covers over my head 

and in the next moment 

hands pawed and groped at me  

There I lied as still as possible  

’till the sun rose 

I never told my parents since they’d just 

say it’s my imagination 

Even to this day, I often wonder if those men 

were either ghosts 

or  

the dreaded shadow people 

Guess I may never know
