On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    I wonder what the opposite to a frenemy is though @SillyLittleBleeder‌.

    A frenemy can be person who is both a friend and an enemy. So a room mate who would leave a sink full of dishes but always ensured the fridge was stocked with beer might be seen as a frenemy.
