by Janet Bunce
Every Halloween night I come by this house.
It opens up its windows to me and slams its doors.
When I creep inside I feel welcome.
I breathe in to feel the connection with days past.
I exhale the memories of people I have known. Their images dance on the walls of each room.
I breathe back in those I have loved, leaving only those that have done me harm. Their numbers are diminishing.
I ask for forgiveness knowing that it is a futile cause.
A witch even one that has worked for good will always be hated in Salem.
