It’s just another night; there’s no air of mystery, no haunted house and certainly no ghosts, and yet I am still utterly terrified. I, a man standing at around 6 foot, was absolutely terrified. It was cold and the dim light of my television dimly lit my bedroom, the scent of my nervous sweat permeated the crisp air. Why am I scared? The dreams. Every night of the past month, without fail, I have woken up screaming. Completely terrified that the awful creatures were still going to be there when I awoke. Running a hand through my greasy black hair I tried to get a grip on my sanity.
He later starts hearing things around the house, and is thinking that his beloved Lenore will come back from the dead. He later starts seeing this bird a raven, and every time he sees it the bird says “Nevermore”. Throughout this poem he is grieving and this bird keeps telling him “Nevermore” which he does not understand why he keeps saying that. He tries to talk to the bird to get answers but the bird keeps repeating itself. In the end, the man could no longer take it and he ended up killing himself. A lot of times when people loose someone we tend to say we see them or they are still here with us, and that can later lead to our deaths. My Grandpa from my mother side had passed away, and we never went to his funeral. My auntie had told us that since that day of the funeral she could feel my grandpa around. She thought she was going crazy till she moved out and started fresh. This tells us that if we keep grieving in the past, and stay there most likely we will end up to our deaths since we do not let the past
The last stanza shows how the speaker will die and his physical body will be gone, but art will stay forever. That is how the old man will leave his mark on the world.

Talking of haunting, what are you thinking about? Something like the movie paranormal activity? Or maybe something like The Amityville horror?? Movie or not, one thing is true, if someone mentions something about “ghosts” it definitely captures your attention. Some people say that ghosts can be divided into two categories, good and bad, just like normal human beings. But are they like us? I mean categorising them is a sane thing? I don’t know. Usually it’s believed that people who have died with some unfulfilled wishes, stay back that is to say their soul stays back with the bindations of mother nature. True or not, I am no one to judge, because i am going to present you enough madness that will question your own sanity.
I come across a rear projection TV on the side of the road one day, load it up, and take it home. I eagerly spend a good four hours stripping it down and saving as much as I can. I end up with a 48” fresnel lens, two hefty speakers, a couple large capacitors, three glass lenses, and a glass mirror. Left over is a box of electronic waste and the particle board skeleton of a TV. I take the electronics to my local electronics recycling center, and set the wooden frame on the curb. I took 70 lbs. of trash and turned it into 10 lbs. of treasure ripe for projects, 30 lbs. of recyclables that would have gone to a landfill, and 30 lbs. of refuse that I had fun
It was 10:45 a.m. on a Wednesday, and I was barely awake. The weather channel said that today would be a very warm day and I dislike going outside in 90 degree weather. I could have stayed in bed under an air conditioned room, but no, I had to go to Knott’s Berry Farm on a hot day. Once through the dark gates, I begin to hear children throwing tantrums and begging to go on their ride of choice. Soon, the scent of greasy popcorn filled the humid air; the butterflies in my stomach happen to flutter in trepidation while I wait in the awfully long line for my first ride, the Ghost Rider. The longer I waited in line under the scorching sun, the more I felt the heat on my face and the ride seemed miles away. After what seems to be an eternity, the
Speaking from my personal experiences I can definitely say the spirit world is real. Such as when i was younger I would always feel strange vibes from certain things such as anything dealing with death. Like I went to a funeral home once and got a vibe that something was watching me. As i continued to walk i felt it getting stronger and stronger as i went to view the body. I wasn’t the only one to feel this feeling as my mother did as well. Many people each and every day encounter something like this. A haunted house, grave,and even a random location like a bridge. Some locations are said to hold powerful energy that anyone feels. Feelings that there could be something lurking. Sometimes when an energy is so high in an
It was all so sudden but I realized I made the choice to go. As much as I wanted to go my gut thought differently. The day was very groggy and had been packed with band practice until the evening. For years I yearned to go, but in trepidation, I could not go. I had finally arrived at dusk as the fog rolled in from the ground as I entered California’s Great America Halloween Haunt. The music was a cacophony throughout the park making it seem more gruesome than it already was. Luckily my friend Jacob came with me, which made me feel gregarious. When walking into one of the haunted houses, I was very fidgety and agitated. I was anxious about going somewhere where I didn't
