You don’t have to see the staircase.
Just take the first step.
What you believe does not
affect the existence of the spectre.
You don’t have to expect a spectre
to see it floating there or sitting
in front of the fire in your armchair.
You don’t have to visit a graveyard
to shake hands with a ghost.
All it takes is an open mind
to see things as they are
but not what you see.
Spectres are souls trapped on earth.
Separated from their loved ones.
Never to see them again.
Hell is knowing that so
In limbo state they search
for open minded people who
don’t expect spectres
but are willing to talk.
