[amanda's Ghost] - Poem by Seth Morrow

I sat up from a dream and looked around.
But she was nowhere to be found.
I checked the room with satin sheets.
But only haunting silence did I meet.

She’s not there.
And now I’m scared.
Only lingering sent of perfume.
Only memories left to consume.
She’s gone, but her spirit looms.

Walking the halls I hear her laughter.
Then flashes bring back that disaster.
I loved her once now wonder why.
I had to say hello, goodbye.
Now close my bloodshot eyes.
I can still hear her cry.

She’s not there.
Now what to do?
Only crime is I left you.
She’s not there.
And that’s the truth.
Ghoulish visions bring me back to you.

I’ll move on now and not look back.
These haunted thoughts I’ll try not to track.
But your memory is fast, in fact.
Then when I stop to rest my eyes.
In my vision, is where you spirit lye’s … Goodbye!

No matter where life takes me I’ll always miss you Amanda. Though I wish you well, with an excellent life. You’re on my mind most days and nights. Take care, and goodbye. Amanda’s Ghost, all of my life.
