Ghosts


Not so different,
But the resentments
Are oh so real,
Hatred at the past,
With a frustrated future.

I try to forget it all,
The many colorless days
That have occupied
These last years,
Yet, they are always present,
With performances every night.

With my days
Filled with yesterdays
And last year,
I wonder sometimes;
If I believed
In the future more;
Maybe I would believe
In the past less.

    Conveys obsessions wiith one's own past so well that the feeling is contagious- Am acheing with sadness and wistfulness. (Report) Reply

    Lovely. Glad to know that someone can express their feelings (and incidentally, mine) so well. (Report) Reply

    Last stanza is a humdinger! Very well done. Now we all need to cheer up and sing the song of the future, where the next love at first sight is only a blink away.......

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
