The man said to the wall
"Why did she leave me, what did I do"
The wall just shook and formed a face
And said
"Because of you"
The man fell off the chair he sat
And said
"Did you just talk?"
The wall replied wit nothing
And the man just thought and laughed
"I'm hearing things"
said the man
I didn't hear a voice
The ceilings leaked with water
And then there was a sudden noise
A wailing sound
A cry and shout
" Why did she leave me!"
The wall It pouts
Water rises from beneath the couch
The fridge
The tables
Just flooding the house
The man he runs
He swims
His way out
To the basement garage
Exhausted in doubt
"I can not escape"
Said the man barely breathing
"The house is against me
With out any reasoning"
The house it roared
Deepening its shores
"I've seen what you've done 2 the female Lenore"
"Bruises and more, blood on my floors, tears on my counters and marks on my floors"
"Bruises and more, blood on my floors, the evil I've seen to the female Lenore"
"Ill drown you alone in the house that you own...my loyalty grown to the man whose unknown"
The ceiling has shown to be just getting weaker
And The basement garage was the next
To be seen here
The man he cried and said to the house
" I'm sorry, I'm sorry, just please let me out
" I understand destruction, I've seen what I've done, I deserve to be lonely, just leave me at once"
The house grew silent
As if the voice left
Then the ceiling collapsed on the evil mans head
Police and the neighbors then quickly realized
That the house wasn't haunted
It was suicide
Anger inside made the man wanna die
The sinks and the tub
Were left on in stride
Weeks thought the man
Whose been cursed by Lenore
I now understand why Lenore left me for
