Every morning she awakes to a new day

 

Each day adds to the count of her days alone

 

Some days the ghost joins her, other’s it rests quietly in the back of her heart and mind

 

In the kitchen it dances around her as she pours her coffee, it can taste the bitterness on her lips

 

During the day it makes appearances in shadows and memories, flooding her mind for a just moment with things she wants to forget

 

When she meets someone new, the ghost stands next to them allowing her to compare, but no one ever stands as tall

 

And if they do it’s only fleeting

 

Sometimes the ghost wakes her up in the middle of the night as it weaves it’s way into her dreams

 

Every night it dares her to wish it away

 

But without it she would not remember love

 

And the thought of

losing love is more tragic than being haunted
