This is a poem I wrote back in 2015, and also an original painting of Ghost.
I believe there are many enigmas that people find mysterious. Whether you believe in the possibility of there being ghosts or not, you can be sure that…
Things aren’t always what they seem…
I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOU
Why can’t you see me?
I never planned on being a Ghost…a Ghost of myself.
Flitting around you, I beg for attention…validation…
I am me…a Soul in transition…pain…
Why won’t you see me? I am here beside you.
You look right through me…like I’m not real.
It’s so hard…so hard…I want to be heard.
I need to know you still think of me…still love me.
I am transformed…not gone, not forgotten, not dismissed or diminished as
A strange sound, a confusing coincident of you know-not-what.
I don’t mean to scare you. Please feel no fear. I need your warmth…your love.
I ache to be near you.
Am I the cold chill you feel when I reach out to touch you?
Yes, it’s me.
Am I the wisp of mist you think you see, from the corner of your eye?
Yes, it’s me
Am I the moaning sound you think is the wind through the cracks?
Yes, it’s me.
I’m screaming out to you. I have been here all along.
I have not forgotten you. I give you signs…
Give me a sign that you still care…that you recognize that sudden small flash of memory.
Yes, it’s me, recognizing you in that moment.
I had to leave this life, this mortal realm.
It wasn’t my choice, you see. Please believe me…believe in me,
As I am still here with you…as I am.
I live in your heart, in your thoughts…I am still me, loving you, with all my Soul.
Am I the silence, when you sense that you’re being watched…yes, it’s me…I am near.
Yes, it’s me…still loving you with all my Soul…I am me…
I am the Ghost beside you…
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
