Ash Man

You smell like an old book,

Like dust and chemicals and mold,

Do you not care of how you look?

So worn, so tired and cold.

You remind me of death and decay,

Stinking like a funeral home,

If I were to leave would you be in dismay?

For only side by side is where we have roamed.

I fear you may blow away if I dare let a breeze in,

As your ash is spreading about as you stand,

Tell me, would you even feel the gentle prick my pin?

If only better in life had I planned.

Worth everything and nothing at the same time,

Your life was up far before I can recall,

Perhaps we should leave and stop this crime,

To better us here in the wall,

After all, you smell like an old book,

And they’re bound to find you if they just look.

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Shantell Murphy: I absolutely love this . I have not read a book by my choice since first grade I am in 9th grade now and I love this book . its suspense is really good . it's alot of foreshadowing witch is cool . it gives a thrill and excitement to the book .

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.
