Pettifog A Digress

The shadows of her ghostly drape
and the lull after the pettifog
of her endless talks
had a murkier shade of the evenfall
escalating the eerie,
and the uneasiness
to an unfathomable decibel
making my heart miss few beats
till I hear her voice again
somewhere inside my soul,
comforting me,
accosting me,
helping me survive her specter
for even when after she left the world
she stayed inside me
to drive her worldly apparition away from my sight
