RESTLESS GHOSTS

Restless ghosts

Please let me sleep,

Your laughter and chatter are not welcome.

Souless gazes, boneless, bloodless shells of human form,

Evaporate, dissipate, you are not really there.

You are ghosts of yesterday,

Hidden in cracks and corners.

I’m not interested in discovering you,

As you dance in your shadow.

No partner, no lover,

Shall save you.

Clad in your garb of days gone by,

You don’t fool me.

Take your portfolio, shapes and past,

And false memories be gone.

    Just when I start missing your writing that’s when another great piece “appears”. This is really good.
