The Nervous Tenants

Word of the Day Challenge: Nervous

 

 

Did I check the basement door

a hundred times before

I went up to the attic  last night?

 

Did I lock the  front door

check the windows

upstairs

a hundred times before

I walked the halls to my rooms

each night?

 

I can’t say, I can’t remember

if I checked the locks on the doors

a hundred times before

but I know I should, I know I must

because I hear desperate  voices ask each other all night

” Did you hear that? Did you see that?”

When I haunt my house

each night.
