Ghostly


I am a figment of my imagination,
I am a hologram, loosed upon the world,
I am the past of the present that's waiting-
Waiting for time, in its time to unfurl.

I am the death in the life breath was bringing,
I am the mirror that the living were shown,
I am the omen that dying has loosened-
I am the spirit upon which flesh has flown.

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
