Haunted

Haunted

‘tis not the specter,
dead and gone, that haunts my soul,
troubling my heart…
‘tis a living love, now lost,
our past drenched in cool regret

obsessed, I’m ruined
by each moment’s ecstasy
I cannot forget

Ghost…Haiku

haunting the hopeful
a ghost of a chance dangles
to keep dreams alive

I believe in ghosts
not that I’ve seen one up close
but i have felt them

my old house whispers
each creak, each groan tells the tale
of a voice silenced
