Others tell me
you’re a ghost, an apparition, unreal
That I shouldn’t call your name
or inhale the memory of your fragrance
But oh, how I cherish the sound of your laugh
and the comfort I feel in your presence
Will it always be like this? Please
tell me yes, because I never want to miss a moment
of our between-worlds, our after-words,
our deathbed pillow talk
(Oh yes, how divine, I remember)
What spell have you concocted,
to delight me when I should feel so forlorn?
How do you soothe my heart,
how do you embrace and comfort me
if you’re unreal?
Oh, be you a ghost, an apparition, unreal
I will call your name and inhale the memory of your fragrance
as you are here with me, and I with you, in
our between-worlds pillow talk.
