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
