The Burning Ghost - Poem by Savannah Begin

It's as if I had awoken from a dream

Everything once desired, lost

A lifeless brain inside of me

An icy core that's trimmed with frost

At times I close my eyes to see

A ghost of you that burns my thoughts

Your voice as calming as the sea

That twists my insides into knots

I reminisce about your laugh

A lovely tune that danced about

You've always been my better half

Your love for me was surged with doubt

But now the years have faded fast

I grasp to every moment shared

Before you left I should've asked

Did you ever know how much I cared?

    I liked the poem a lot. You always wonder after a break up. You can become numb, but when they leave, circumstances become clearer. Good write of emotion. Thanks for sharing it with us! (Report) Reply

    I do have one question: Why the double spacing? (Report) Reply
