Haunted? Let Me Set the Mood...

Cover of "Haunted"Cover of Haunted


After I wrote yesterday's post, I sat and brainstormed what I would write if I blogged on the theme of haunted. In about 15 minutes, I listed about ten different topics that could easily fit the theme. It looks like another month where the NaBloPoMo blogging theme is a weird and wonderful fit with where I am today. Which begs the question: is there really such a thing as coincidence after all?

Before I start writing those posts, I felt inspired today to take a closer look at the definition of the word haunted. I also Googled "haunted" and it let me to this really beautiful song by Poe of the same title. I've added the lyrics and a widget to this post so you can read the poetry and listen to the song for yourself.

I think you'll agree that in doing my background search for information, I've gathered the elements to set the mood for a very haunted October 2009.

HAUNTED

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...
Come here
Pretty please
Can you tell me where I am
You won't you say something
I need to get my bearings
I'm lost
And the shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the lies that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Don't cry,
There's always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We'll pray
Please, I know it's hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the promises I've made
And others I have broken
I'm haunted
By the lies that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Hallways... always

I'll always want you
I'll always need you
I'll always love you

And I will always miss you

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Come here
No I won't say please
One more look at the ghost
Before I'm gonna make it leave
Come here
I've got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
Build a casket for my tears

I'm haunted
(By the lives that I have loved)
I'm haunted
(By the promises I've made)
I'm haunted
By the hallways in this tiny room
The echos there of me and you
The voices that are carrying this tune

Ba da pa pa...

Father :
What is it Annie?

Daughter :
You think I'll cry? I won't cry!
My heart will break before I cry!
I will go mad.



Haunted - Poe
