Each one of us has his own ghost stories to tell. Some of them may be true and some are purely products of our imagination. These stories are parts of our childhood and we cannot deny the fact that until now, there are instances that we keep on re-telling these stories to our friends just for the sake of being scared.

I won't be telling a ghost story here. Rather, I'll share one of my obsessions. I want to go to haunted houses or haunted mansions (of course, with friends). Exploring these places in spite of its eeriness would be awesome, imo. You may ask, why not do it alone? In case of emergencies, it's still better to have a company, right?


a webbed chandelier
flickers and mourns in silence
hushing draperies

veiled bride awaits
incense fills the bolted room
eerie fanciness


If I remember it correctly, I wanted to celebrate my birthday last year at a place called "Suicide Mountain" here in Japan but it didn't push through. I can't really remember the exact reason but I guess it for my own good.

Until this very moment I really want this obsession to come true. But I want to be ready when that opportunity comes. And I hope my friends will be too. I won't be doing it alone.

Happy Halloween!
