Once I remember,
I had been to a place,
Where everything,
Seemed strange and still.
A big house stood front of me,
Where the door was dusty and ancient,
The Moon which has flashed its light,
Has fallen on the door.

I realised it is a Moonlit door,
Where the light expanded and covered,
I smote on the door,
Which rippled the light.
I could see a shadow,
When the wind passed by,
It rippled the light,
When a rat swooped past me with its red gleaming eyes.

I sprang up to see a shadow,
Which looked like a mouth,
But realised,
It is a tight.
It was a leaf I remember,
When the door banged open.

A lot of phantoms,
Passed through me.
I thought it had possessed me,
But in rage it didn’t,
When I ran towards home.
