Tonight the ghost are restless…



The ghost are restless

Their cries pierced the darkness

They came back to the place

Where it all started

The merry go-round of memories

Breaks the silence


The moon died

Ephemeral love

Rise up once again

A witness to reality

Unfaithful hearts

Greedy Eyes

A nation of fools

Falling over their Tongues

‪The ghost are restless‬

‪Their cries‬

‪Pierce the darkness‬

‪They came back‬

‪To where it all started‬

‪The merry go round‬

‪Of memories‬

‪Breaks the silence‬


The moon died

‪What was‬

‪Rise up again‬

‪Fools falling‬

‪Over their tongues©‬

Poetry Today

The Ghost Within….

Moments caught
Off guard
The elemental truth
Unleashed from within
The eloquent fire
Of things you knew
Things you are afraid to say
And Midnight tears
Cannot Suffused the
The way your stealth disguise
Shameful layers
Glowed on painted skin
Hiding the black
The blue
The needles harsh
Flesh wounds
Sinking down
Down into the abyss
Of self degradation
Never to care
Never to feel
Never to rise
A life sentence
Of self-righteous
Your ghost
Like Paper moon
Haunts the living
And the dead
No way back
No way out
The soul imprisoned
Thirty to life©
