13 Steps

The Haunted Gallery is very happy to present a very special item.
After several hours of sifting through forgotten piles of media, I have reclaimed an old college project from the ever present threat of oblivion.

The piece is entitled "13 Steps". It is a poem that I wrote many years ago. What makes it so special though is that it was recorded and edited with lots of eerie sounds and music. For the narration, I enlisted the help of a friend of mine from England who has a wonderful voice. Her accent combined with the sound effects give this poem a wonderfully spooky atmosphere.

The poem is about that terrifying moment you realize that you are in a very dark place... too far away from the light switch.

Well done! I assume you don't mind if I pass around the link?

I don't know if you follow this blog any more, but this is one of my all time favorite poems. It completely captures the feeling I used to get when I had to go down to my old basement. I love this site even though it seems to have fallen to disuse. I visit it every Halloween. Unfortunately, it seems that the poem won't work with the modern player. If you read this, would it be possible to either find this poem reading in another site, or would it be possible for you to reload it, or could I find the typed version somewhere. I really need this poem in my life.
