I saw a ghost tonight
I'm not sure if it was real
she woke me from my sleep
I said hello

I saw a ghost tonight
but eyes can deceive
and it was dark
and I was just awake

I heard a ghost tonight
but ears can deceive
and other people can make floorboards creek
and I was still half asleep

I may have touched a ghost tonight
it took one swipe of my hand
and she was gone
I didn't feel anything at all

I have never seen a ghost before
I hid unde rmy blanket
telling myself it wasn't real
as I heard footsteps recede

I wonder who she was
I wonder if she will come back

I once wrote poems
spilling my darkness
onto paper
I wish to write poems
spilling the light
I have found within myself
I seem to have lost my touch

if it was ever there

and every night i go to sleep
would you say yes
if I asked you now?
I don't think she would

You are there
Like an ache
In my bones
You are there
Like a heaviness
In my heart
You are there
Like a fixture
In my mind
You are everywhere
In the way I dress
And walk
And talk
And think
You are everywhere
Except in my arms

if I were only less lonely

Girl of many faces
Got lost
In between transitions
What is your true form?
Carefully crafted masks
Set out in front of you
Which one
Will you wear

ketjil Jan 2020
You whisper
my name
my lips

a prayer
to the gods

Coming Home
As the morning sun
Through the window
Wrapping around you
Holding you
Keeping you
