this was inspired by two frightening, memory-inducing events


Ghost of the Past

Yes, I'm on the sidelines
Late, by minutes
And I float on by
Staking my position
in the enemy camp
Don't let the wind come
Face struck with awe
Yes, I came back

Yes, I'm out of my comfort zone
Against the back wall
And you float on up
Liquored in pursuit
of bringing thoughts back to surface
So I hold you up, let it go
Farewell before too long
As we slip 'tween worlds of time
and disappear again
