Negative Symbols and Symbols of Evil

Updated on October 7, 2013


Anyone who has read any of my comments on HubPages would conclude that I am a skeptic, sometimes to the extreme. I am still a skeptic and will probably always be a skeptic, but I wanted to publish the following poem about some events, that were coincidental, but that some would view as paranormal. This poem, is based on actual real events:


Thirteen, thirteen, the cashier said.
I paid her while, I shook my head.

My first response, buy one more item,
Lest Ole bad luck will be invited.

She looked at me as if to say,
that must've ruined your bloody day.

Pretending it didn't bother me,
I left the market, oh, so quickly.

I walked outside, mounted my horses,
soon forgetting ‘bout dark forces

The drive back home was so serene.
T’was no more thought of number thirteen.

Into my yard, I drove upon
three jet-black cats perched on the lawn.

One in the middle, one on each side,
They glared at me, with golden eyes.

They sat there looking so seriously,
as if they'd been waiting, waiting for me.

Not knowing that this was a curse,
and forgetting, that day was October, thirty-first.

When I unmounted, stepped on the lawn,
They all scattered. All were just gone.

Later that night, I heard the sounds,
They'd made their home under my house.

On some nights, I hear them playing.
I leave them food , but never see 'em.

I worry much ‘bout their well-being.
Hope that they're dry, that they're not freezing.

You see, that day--on Halloween,
I purchased three souls for thirteen thirteen.


Do you believe that some symbols are ominous, and represent evil?

      A Thousand Words 

      6 years ago

      I find that when I am most in tune with myself and nature, the strangest things happen to me. My boyfriend shares an apartment with his cousin and girlfriend, though they spend 95% of their time in a different state (this is their summer apartment). I had a dream one Friday night that they were in the living room. They showed up at the house (never having called) that Sunday morning. Yesterday my boyfriend was at work and I thought about him all day. I looked at my phone (which was on silent) and he had just texted me maybe 30 seconds before I looked at my phone. I've heard it called syncrohnicity. I had that song "when the moon hit's your eye like big pizza pie..." stuck in my head all day once. I came home from work, turned on the TV and an old movie had just ended. Guess what the closing theme song was? I've had so many experiences that I can't count them.

      Beautiful flow to the poem. I like the rhythm and the imagery. Also, it's good of you to feed your souls...even if you can't see them.

      Weirdness is my life. I'm obssessed with observation, and sometimes when I piece things together, they combine for strange stories.
