I haven't been back there since then but would like to visit again.

Comment by Neighbor: That is a scary experience! I live in old Salem Village right next to the homestead but have really been too much of a chicken to venture in near the cemetery. Lol. I am absolutely fascinated by the ghost stories up there, and as soon as I can muster up some courage I will go check it out.
Comment by anonymous: Oh I'm so sorry for you, that sounds terrifying.

I will never forget this. The image will be burned into my memory forever. I am thirty-five. I live in Oregon and work for a well known semi-conductor company. Several years ago I was visiting my uncle in Danvers, MA with my brother. We were in the entertainment room downstairs. My brother fell asleep in a recliner on the opposite side of the room. I was lying on the couch watching TV. I had turned off the television, getting ready to crash. I looked in the direction of the recliner where my brother was sleeping. On the opposite side of the chair where my brother slept was a bright white person. Its eyes were too big; it had shoulder length hair, sunken cheeks and tiny slit for a mouth. Its neck was too thin, and it was wearing tattered shredded clothes, shirt ripped above the elbows and a vest. Its arms were bone thin. Its hands were bone thin, and fingers were too long. Its hands and fingers were resting over my brother's head. The second I looked at this thing, its eyes met mine, instantly. I have never seen a stare like this. I cannot describe it other than it knew what it was, what I was and it felt like it had a purpose. Very very slowly, it raised its hands from the top of my sleeping brother's head and moved them up to its chest. It started to move slowly from behind the chair. I saw that it had pants that were shredded at the ankles. But it did not have feet. It felt like ten minutes had passed for this thing to move seven feet from the chair to the wall. It slowly, and I mean slowly, passed into the wall. It never stopped looking at me. The last thing I saw was its eyes disappearing into the wall.
I cannot describe exactly what it was that I felt. What I did not feel was fear, awe, anxiety or shock or anything that I would have expected. It was like being in a void, and I cannot find the words to describe it other than - it was nothing. I lay there for a few minutes and rushed towards my brother. He was white as a sheet and did not look like he was breathing. Now I was freaked out. I shook my brother at his shoulder and called his name. He took an immediate deep breath like he was suffocating. He woke up, and had a hard time snapping out of it. I told him what I saw. He said that he was completely awake, but paralyzed from head to toe. He said he could see everything around him all at once and saw me watching him. But his eyes were closed during the entire event. He said he could not breathe. He said it felt like he had to fight with all his will to move, or he would have been lost. He said that he felt an intense pressure from the top of his head, and this pressure was moving down his neck and pushing out of his chest. This is where is description sounded really strange, but ''I think'' he said that he saw many geometric shapes streaming from his chest, geometric shapes that he ''never saw before,'' and they were crashing into the ceiling. He said that it felt like he was being pushed out.
When I talk to my brother about this now, he says he remembers that I woke him up, that he was paralyzed, and that he could not breathe. But he does not remember what he said or what I just described. Currently my brother lives in Oregon. He is thirty-one and a software developer. I cannot say it was a ghost because I have never seen a ghost prior to this. I have seen some incredible things in my life, but this was truly the most un-natural. No one needs to believe this; it does not matter. It changed my perceptions and will never leave me.
