Blind Belief

Rain gnaws windows.
I admire the tapestry,

November daylight fades.
I sense a presence.
Nerves prickle –
I freeze, feel trapped, can’t breathe.

‘That room...?’
‘ haunted,’ the guardian agrees.
‘A murderess...’

‘So there you are!’  Husband and friends advance.
‘A  g-ghost...’
‘Rubbish!’ they hoot,
‘Just tales for tourists.’
