Do you listen?

Composed 4/25/16
Description: For Day 23 of NaPoWriMo and for today’s Daily Prompt: Whisper.

Do you listen to the whispers of the world?
They speak to you
when the wind whistles and goosebumps
prickle up and down your skin
when the dark closes in
when you feel the sin of sweet on your lips and
the churning inside that settles like sand
Do you listen?
The world is telling you
that spirits ride just behind you that
evil lurks in your corner
and God hovers in certain places when
the view seems sharper and
you smile just because
Do you listen?
It’s not being subtle
we forget we were born psychic
with good and evil within
they tell us to ignore sensation bare perception
but the whispers of the world are what tell us the truth
So listen
let it guide you

Ghosts

Composed 4/29/15
Description: Having a life gets in the way sometimes.

We must be lonely
It’s the nature of the beast
If we are out playing, engaged
Our minds are filled
Our hearts, content
We have no need to explode
On the page

Lives
Anesthetic for the mind
No time, will for introspection
Comprehension of the connotation of our days
We must be lonely
Outsiders
House hiders
Ghost writers

A Note from a Ghost

Composed 11/8/14
Description: A note I left behind.

Though I feel like I’d died in ripping agony
in your arms a thousand times
I like how I am still ghosts
on your walls
How my presence lurks
like candlelight casting shadows
shifting
lingering
in every empty space
So little else remains
I wonder
I hope?
My touch still comforts
Still haunts
