Ghosts

I'm a ghost to you; you're a ghost to me

Nothing's as it was; nothing comes for free

You pay with your tears; I pay with my dreams

You play with the fears; I play with extremes

It seems...

You're a ghost to me; I'm a ghost to you

Masks on tired faces, feelings deep perdue

Things we truly wanted but feared to pursue

Now are buried elsewhere; hearts laden with rue

One day, will they spew?..

    One day, will they spew?.. Hope they do beautifully without anything in between. Loved this composition. Lovely!

    Lovely! and deep... really heart-touching.. especially the last question, "One day, will they spew?", a question in every person's mind... so thoughtfully and beautifully written....

    Hoping there will be much spewing soon! 🤮 Sounds cathartic in this context, which I don’t even know the context of so am just projecting my own anxieties onto this piece but alas! Nice to see you on vocal media Andrei!! 😁

    Ahhh. I feel this is me. Or has been. Very evocative and I adore your slant and end rhymes.💜

    Yes. "You pay with your tears; I pay with my dreams" I felt this, though I was the one to pay with both. So well done

    Love this! Playing with fear and extremes! This poem is extremely good it will cause all other writers to fear they won’t be as good! Great work!

  • Rachel Deeming4 months ago

    That last line. So melancholy and then that almost subverts all the emotion that's gone before it with its casual bluntness.

    Very creative!!

    I feel less like they will spew and more like they will accumulate into a quagmire!

  • Or simply crumble into dust & fade from all memory?
