There are some monsters simply don’t seem to want to leave.
They have made a home in the between; feeling at home in our attic or basement with the other pieces of history.
Comfortable among the cobwebs.
Settled in the still air.
Delighted in the darkness.
One may visit them from time to time and this is where they get their energy.
Though there is no need for them in the present day.
Hopefully they will no longer haunt and soon fade away.
For time is now, in this moment and one can not go back and they can not be pulled forward.
There is no place for them to go and no place to grow.
They are stuck in a trap that opens and closes on both sides.
Time to time they will make themselves known to find a way to let go and be let go.
They are monsters you are holding in some way.
When you hear them start to stir, through the walls or ceiling, open a window or a door and set them free.
There is no time to wait or hesitate.
They are ready, in full movement and ready to flee.
Do not invite them in.
Do not bring them back to life only for a night.
They are part of a past history.
Let this be their last haunting.
Now is the time to take back the energy.
Steady in your steps.
Let thoughts stream, in the present, is where they need to be.
Look them in the eye for a final time and do not let them come alive.
When the ghosts start to stir, whether it be in your heart or in your mind;
Let them be.
Don’t give them energy.
Set them free.
Open up and let them leave.
