Ghost

Rating: 4.8
As I wake up
And adjust my eyes
From deep sleep
To daylight
I see a ghost
In front of me

I say
Am I dead
Am I alive

Beautiful writing on sleep in a context I've never considered before, even though when I was eight I woke and saw a young boy watching me, around the time my nan passed over.., food for thought indeed. Karen

Astral projection. Visitation. I love the idea of the conscious mind transcending the physical body, either through death or meditation. For me this poem is potent in atmosphere.

Exactly, a man is like a dead when he is asleep. As per indian myth, the soul wonders when we are asleep.

Your poem is very nice.Ghost is your altar ego.We the Indian Hindus too believe that when we sleep our soul roams.

A gentle and evocative poem. You may like to read my poem, I could not sleep, which is along a similar theme with a different take. Great work.
