My latest for my #whatpainsyouproject –
a poem for an anonymous reader and their pain…
ghost haunting the halls
so desperate are you
to communicate with the living
as they live lives
pushing you deeper
into the corners you inhabit.
across rooms you flit
dismissed as mere shadow
while all your cried anguish
passed off as howling on the wind.
that great light of salvation
shines just beyond your flailing hands
yet you seek not rest
only a greater want to tear open
eyes sewn shut to your existence.
