    Ghosts

    Everyone has skeletons in the closet,
    or so they say, but sometimes
    even old bones can fade away.
    Leaving behind the faintest energy of woe.
    Creaking in the floor boards,
    whispering when the wind blows.
    It may lead some people to hang their heads
    and cry.
    Or shake in their beds and pull the covers high.
    But these are not the emotions that these things
    instill in me,
    For these are just the ghosts of skeletons
    that people have set free.

    I can see the similarities in our poems. Both poems realize the importance of freeing oneself from our ghosts of the past. Good write, TS

    I see I found another original good poetess, cool, :)

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
