Merciful Ghost - Poem by Francis Santaquilani

Is it a haunting

If it comes with an alarm

And a warning label which reads,

'For the faint hearted host'?


It must be you. Your

Kind of haunting. Only you

Would know how easily I scare.


You were never gone too long.

Why would it change now.


I always knew when you were coming.

I knew what to expect.

You knew what I could handle.


Pain in increments should be your motto.


Why should your death disrupt our routine?


How lucky I am to have such a merciful ghost.
