chasing ghosts


  • Sadness

    chasing ghosts

    you twist and turn on threads of silk
    in and out
    back and forth
    weaving a pattern of despair
    chasing ghosts
    reaching and striving
    just beyond your grasp
    as you chase ghosts beyong your reach
    faded images and blurred memories
    as if just yesterday
    today you chase ghosts long gone and best forgotten
    a pattern of despair
    these threads of silk
    this woven walk-thru of your life
    chasing ghosts
    reach beyond and inside
    realize you are simply chasing ghosts
    no more self inspection
    no more self deception
    accept and embrace yourself
    no more exceptions
    chasing ghosts
    a pattern not of your own creation
    no more exceptions, deceptions and inspections
    simply accept these reflections
    a mirror image of truth as you chase ghosts
    this woven pattern does not serve you
    or does it?
    reflections of who you are
    who you were
    images of ghosts
    if not now, when?

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
