Haunted

Frozen in terror,
that girl looked affright.
Her hair stood on end
as if glued in place.
A mouth locked open
from horrors unsaid.
Her skin gone pallor
from a heart at rest.
But what stood out most,
the haunted look in her eyes
that suggested their owner
knew not whether
to scream or to cry.

Prompt: Haunted
