The Lady in Black

Inside the white mansion lived the lady in black

Her long black hair, floats as she walks

Unseen by most, though her presence is felt

She haunts the the white mansion day and night

She lurkes in the dark and appears when you least expect it

Do not seek her or call out her name

And if you are unlucky enough to encounter her

Do not stare at her deep black eyes

Otherwise, you’ll meet your demise

This is in response to Sue W and GC’s Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge – Simply Black. The theme is in line with horror month so I came up with this post.
