    Remember the Ghost

    He is merely a ghost,
    a reflection of his former self.
    He looks like the same man,
    but his dispotion's gone to hell.

    He wanders the roads,
    always walking aimlessly.
    Questioning himself,
    "Can I heal the pain in me?"

    He sits on a throne.
    A chair in an empty space.
    No windows in the room,
    no mirrors for him to see his face.

    He can't look at himself.
    He can't bear to see,
    how he's changed so much,
    he doesn't want to believe.

    He remembers the time
    when he could talk freely.
    A happy time back when
    opening up was easy.

    Now he bottles it all up,
    he hides it from the world.
    He pretends that all is well,
    but then the truth becomes unfurled.

    Others can see through his smile
    and see it in his weary eyes.
    They know that he is suffering,
    they can hear his cries.

    Still he acts like nothing's wrong.
    Perpetually in denial.
    He remembers the ghost and
    wanders the earth for a while.

    Out the door again
    to find a way to heal the pain.
    A vagabond in his head.
    On the road, he remains.

    Longer than your typical pieces. And though, this seems a bit morose for you. I swear, it reminds me of another piece you'd written. Maybe it the "ghostly" aspect of this that I swear I have read before in your work. (Now I must go searching)

    Other than that aspect of it though, this was refreshingly different and seemed quite thoughtful. Kudos.

    What can I say? I like talking about ghosts, LOL. The word "ghost" pops up in a lot of my work. It's like a run-on gag of sorts. I wasn't sure if anyone would like this one because I wrote it with little to no planning (which is highly uncommon for me) and I was at Caribou hyped up on about three gallons of coffee.

    Thanks for reading and commenting though.
