An Apparition On My Life. - Poem by Joseph Tanner
An apparition on my life,
Once ever so significant.
Now a shadow on my memory,
Your fingerprints lay upon my heart.
I am the person I am today if it were not for you,
Dreams were fulfilled,
Fears were dealt.
You opened up my shunted eyes,
Trying food that I dare not touch like a spoilt child,
Listening to music that I’d usually flit on by.
Your smell that I laid upon,
Now leaving me like my childhood smells of disinfectant sitting in the dentist chair.
Your voice a distant memory,
The way you laughed,
The sound, the person.
Never thought they would be that.
Now an apparition on my life,
Ever so evaporating.
