I’m more a ghost than you’ll ever be

27 Apr

I’ve already done a callback poem, so for napowrimo day 26 I’m doing the opposite.

When the sun sets I come
Climbing over padlocked gates
Down the winding paths
To you

Beside you I sit and wait
Hoping for your faint embrace
That soft and slight touch on my face
Of you

I can’t accept you won’t appear
Can’t accept your soul’s at peace
Won’t accept you died happy
With him

      I’m secretly a very bitter individual.

        I’m not-so-secretly a very bitter individual.
