ghost of love


Looking out the window…in tears…with pen & paper
…I am a veteran

isn’t love…complex...bittersweet
…prisoners of love

the only way to live…explode…tomorrow never comes

killed on a strafing run…I read this & cried
…straining to be heard & to be silent…war takes
Their Own Children…the sound & smell are my ghosts

sorry for your heartbreak…stark in its pain
…write a poem about it…

beyond beauty…a woman like this…not needing any debate
still waters run deep…today this hits harder…supposed to have a heart

scream from the top of mountains…Danger Close
…hold nothing back…always love the gutter

(For the dead travel fast)…the mysterious girl
…the ghost train…you missed her

Never being alone…obsidian tears
…I can love you…follow me…faint rose

life on the edge…very very cool…fast cars hot chicks & cheap thrills
110 mph…’71 Torino GT…’70 Cougar…made a mess out of life
…one quick breath…Thanks for the memories

we pursue the waywardness…a lost soul…do I eat or get high?
sell yourself…inwardly pulled…wander & wonder…a long way

a bad night…never any music…Emotional Rollercoaster
…you are a reason…damn

what remains…opened my eyes…Gave Me Chills
…brought a tear (or two)…

ending is…heartbreaking…I have to stop…reflect
fleeting beauty…spins…dances
…delicate…at the end
