My Boyfriend is a Ghost
« on: March 18, 2020, 10:58:23 AM »
His presence lingers like cold air in a breeze
Itís travelled for miles parting mountains and seas
Thereís a void around me where you once stood
I wish I could see you, oh how I wish that I could

My boyfriend is a ghost, or is he an oak tree?
I long for the day that he returns, and comes back home to me
Following me quietly, I hear a voice say:
ďIím alive, Iím not a ghost, you pushed me away.
I was here, and now Iím gone, but I just could not stay.Ē

He lies, heís a ghost, I know it to be true
For he haunts my dreams, and cries my fears
I know he feels it too

His presence is clear like clouded stained glass
He speaks to poisoned ears and memories that pass
Heís stood beside me now, as steady as a tree
Maybe he wasnít a ghost after-all, maybe it was me

second line: it*
3rd stanza, second line: "cries my fears", what do you mean by this? as to me, it made no sense (?)

Overall, it an incredible poem. I love the transition from him potentially being a ghost to you being the ghost. It's quite clever!
