Digging out the remains of a dreary existence in a haunted house.
Prompt for contest

Doling out woe.
Doling out grief.
Grief stricken mind.
Grief wrapped psyche.
Psyche longs for mirth.
Psyche craves for bliss.
Bliss laden days.
Bliss sheathed past.
Past is ample joy.
Past is vibrant dreams.
Dreams, now skulk.
Dreams, now sink.
Sinking in gloom.
Sinking in despair.
Despair begets sloth.
Despair procures pain.
Pain creates tension.
Pain makes me sad.
Sad thoughts engender
Sad feelings, despondence.
Despondent lives lurk in
Despondent houses.
Houses, full of ghosts.
Houses, swarmed with phantoms.
Phantoms lurk inside.
Phantoms appall .
Appalling house bewails.
Appalling abode cries.
Cries of skeletal remains
Cries of wretched presence.
Presence once dwelt.
Presence always lived.
Lived a dream of 'Life',
Lived a dream of gaiety.
Gaiety once stayed here.
Gaiety flourished here.
Here, no frolic dwells.
Here, no fun lingers.
Lingers only ample woe.
Lingers only gloom.
Gloom prevails.
Gloom persists here.
Here, no life remains.
Here, only darkness stays.
Staying in a coffin.
Staying in a graveyard.
Graveyard- macabre and grim.
Graveyard- gruesome, awful.
Awful dolefulness.
Awful dolefulness.
Dolefulness suffocates.
Dolefulness torments.
