The Ghost Of What's To Come


It's so cold
but everybody looks warm
I'm here
but nobody sees me

I reach out
but nobody feels me
I talk
but nobody hears me
everybody changes
but yet I stay the same

I am the ghost in your house
I am the noises in the night
I am what you will become

I am you

    Maybe we are ghosts. Our presence held in the imagination of figments and firmants. An energy pulse from a time long gone, captured in the turmoil of reincarnation.
    Great poem Dave :) (Report) Reply

    It's very nice to read you once again after a long time. This means something very different from what it is. In fact it a mystery as this comment of mine. I am you............................ I am what you have to become...... (Report) Reply
