Poems....

Well, here's the one poem off the top of my head that I think is vaguely ok and worth sharing...


Old Ghosts

why are you so paralysed by love
is it that you can't expose your soul
is it the all pain of letting go
or is it just old ghosts?

I don't believe in ghosts

old ghosts, old memories
old half-forgotten things
a neat collection of invisible scars
but I don't believe in ghosts

why are you so crushed by life
is it the impossible ups and downs
is it those who casually abuse you
or is it just old ghosts?

I don't believe in ghosts

old ghosts, old memories
twisting your thoughts and emotions
the scars sear to the surface and you'll break
but I don't believe in ghosts

why are you in so much pain
is it that what goes up must come down
because your tears are so irrational
or is it just old ghosts?

I don't believe in ghosts

old ghosts, old memories
old half-forgotten things
what was and should have never been
but I don't believe in ghosts

old ghosts, old memories
I don't believe in ghosts
they haunt, they taunt, they judge you and torment you
but I don't believe in ghosts

I don't believe in ghosts



There 'tis.

I have another that's much more directly about the abuse but it's very... personal and raw, emotionally, and pretty long....
