Be careful with who you give your heart to.
They’ll let you breathe, and steal your
breath without you even knowing. Vanish
and then leave you to roam as a ghost while
they live a love life with the breath they stole
from you.

Be careful who you give your heart to.

They’ll let you breathe, and steal your 

breath without you even knowing. Vanish

and then leave you to roam as a ghost while

they live a love life with the breath they stole 

from you.

 

You awaken every ghost in my 

soul. You stand in my doorway 

asking me to let you breathe 

into me again, you bring out 

the moans in my body. I remember

you walking away and not even

leaving flowers.

 

I guess you couldn’t stay away like

you thought. I haunt you each time 

you try to get further back. I drag you 

deeper into the further you have only 

time for one reaction.

 

The faster you ghost me. The slower 

I breathe & the slower I breathe the 

faster my ghost comes to life and 

looking for the knife in the night that 

gave me the hardest heart attack. You 

just left me to ghost and breathe.

 

I guess I wasn't able to resist this

faint past life like I thought. You almost

bring me back to life, the further I

try to pull away you pull me back 

into a further fantasy. I try to breathe

and you stop me.

 

The tighter you hold me, the stronger

I release the ghost you created inside me. 

The longer the embrace the faster the

ghost inside me reacts. It rushes to my mind. 

Because I remember how you just left me 

to ghost and breathe.

 

The closer it comes to grabbing the knife it 

comes closer to grabbing that eternity. The 

closer I come to breathing is the closer I come 

to my ghost resurrection & in the same instance 

I come to my revenge. 

 

Love stories can shift quickly, start off as 

beautiful romantic poetics, then in one 

breath flow to the strings of blackest 

poetry. Sometimes you just have to 

feel the Ghost and just Breathe. 

Then ask yourself was it love or 

just lust? Then question the moment

you seek closure do you see an end 

in letting go or do you see yourself 

holding onto revenge?
