New Poetry Wednesday: Ghost


I see you there
Flesh and bone
Ghost soul
Long destroyed yourself
Ignored and was ignored
For so long
Death came too soon
To be noticed
A cancer in heart
Still you move through
This physical plane
Leaving shadows in your wake
Little ghost tangible
Floating through my life
Taught me the values
Of fear, avoidance, enabling
Those trapped in anger’s
Fiery claws for an eternity
Barely tried to care
All a show
A show to hide
Hide the funeral within
