Haunted Chamber

You could swear that you’re alone in the room, but whenever you turn your head, you can smell her perfume. Violets. She always wore violets.
Key scents: old wood, violets

“One need not be a chamber to be haunted,
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.

Far safer, of a midnight meeting
External ghost,
Than an interior confronting
That whiter host.”


Emily Dickinson
