G is for Ghost



What spirit does your 
Body house
Now that your ghost
Follows me,
Treading lightly at my heels,
Day and night?
Part of you keeps me
Company, poised on the
Side of my bed,
Waiting 
High above the city,
While the other part
Forgets
Again and again.

  1. I have no creativity when it comes to poetry. I leave that to my daughter. However, she is 17 and most of it is about the rain in her soul.

    1. This is the ghost of a person who's still alive. I can't decide if that makes it creepier or less creepy...

  9. What a fitting image to go with the theme of your post.
    I could interpret your poem to be about ghosts or people in our lives who have ghost-like qualities.
