Let Go, It’s Time

My hands scrape the cold ground
Digging for the final exhale
Which to shake the Earth
Punish time
Take this down
Absolve us
Of all this we've
Become

Let go
Of the benign
Indifference
You hold in your mouth
We are ghosts
In this place
With nothing
To haunt
Our time punished
Through broken lens
Without understanding

We all let go
Sometimes
Or try to
Attempted facade
A slow dance
Running from dreams
A lethargic assault
Tumbling over
The broken
And reckless
Until the time
We are caught
In stillness
In understanding
In difference

Now, what do you see
Nothing
I caress your cheek
Explore your eyes
We really don't know
Do we

ghost uncivil

  1. You wrote a beautiful post! 🙂 It was the ‘first’ ghost story I’ve ever read here on WP. I related to your expressions = nice style of writing. I confess: “Your comment on how we all are FOS was the best laugh of my day.” 🙂

    I don’t know why, but the second stanza made me think of society, and how we are constantly looking at phones, not aware of our surroundings, giving ghosts nothing to haunt.

    ‘Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin’ to be so quiet?
    We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin’ our best to deny it’.
    Visions of Johanna ~ Bob Dylan

    To me, it is something
    when a poem leads me
    to reminisce along the
    lines of a songs, by Bob Dylan

    Amazing. Especially the last line. In difference. Indifference. Seriously such great imagery throughout the piece.
