Ghosts Poem by Pamela Horowitz

Ghosts



GHOSTS

Mantras of
obsessing
distressing
constantly
returning
to

ghosts
no longer
real is of
no matter

physical sense
gone

but the
grooves
and well
worn
passageways,
linger on

the freedom
from the
dysfunction
of so many
years

the mistaken
warmth of
why? how
can it be?

u can't analyze
the ghosts
away or stay
in the muck
that's still

beckons
for an answer
of something
to the truth of
love

the pain paced
out over years
in paths creating
diversion and
submersion

in pacing
well worn
pathways that
once comforted
trekking over
and over

now are
ghosts of
the past, to sit
with, feel
as if it will
magically
change

by giving
breath to
it, to obsess
over what
was never
pacified

what was
never
acknowledge

They beckon
come back
sit in the
muck of
what made
you nuts

sit in the
muck and
feel that
comfort
of sitting

carry on
but not
too far
away
as the
ghosts
become
real and
beckon
you to
stay, feel

that which
is no
longer
there.

ghosts
to
revel in the
grooves of
the years
spent usurping
space in the
brains way
to compensate

for loss
one must
write a new
groove to
cover over
the pathways
the signs
that call
one
back.

to move
forward,
release these
monsters
that were
never friends

release the fear
to begin again
and again

forgive yourself
forgive your
thoughts forgive
the mistakes
made in trusting
the pain, thinking
you would eventually
gain all that you
sought

be the host
of your dreams
although it feels
lost, the comfort
lies in telling
those ghosts
to Ef off!

with the biggest
smile you can
muster, knowing
they have lost
their luster you
say in your mind

a heartfelt
goodbye
is
not forever
is not pain
to refrain
from feeling
that which
is no longer
there

what you'll
find in time
will blow
your mind

because the
Beauty of you
is truly
the groove
to strengthen
to be loved
to beckon
your beauty
back

those that
lie are ghosts
that cannot
fly

release them
free them
ghosts can't
hurt you

but knowing
ur souls beauty
will never
desert you
