Memories and ghosts 

 

I had gone to bed alone he said he would be back soon but he had yet to return I told myself that I would wait for him forever if need be right before I drifted off to sleep. Some time during the night my dog began to bark I leaped into action running to the window my heart raising all I could think about was him but he was not there and a few tears feel as I glanced at the clock it was midnight he had never been this late before. 

He always came back at ten never any later earlier but never later I collapsed on the bed "where are you?" I asked the empty room as if it had the answer I could picture his pale hair like captured sun beams and his green eyes that shined like a warm spring day. For just a second I felt a cold chill on my shoulder "just a wisp of wind" I think as I look up at my ceiling and drift back to sleep.

I could sense his presence and a smile came to my face he was back I was so happy I couldn’t say anything he ran his hands over the back of my arms and I could feel his warmth behind me as he wrapped his arms around my shoulders. “I missed you” I said as I reached my hand back and ran my fingers over his hand.

I frowned he felt wrong like I was touching a feather almost the sense of wrongness increased as tears streamed down my face. I turn my head to face him but his hands stop me my heart begins to race he never stopped me from looking at him before who was this.

An alarm sounded in my head “Hush its me” he said and my heart calmed its frenzied pace it was his voice it was him I smiled a big smile as tears of joy hit my checks. “Please stay don’t go never leave me again” I ramble there is a long silence and I feel his hand in my hair.

“I came to see you one last time” he said and my heart shattered to tiny bits at his words “No, no you promised you said you would never ever leave me they all leave me Dan, Jack, Rick but not you” I sob out as the tears pore down my face I feel his hand wipe some of the way word tears off my check.

“It is not my choice if it was I would stay you know that” he said I cried harder he wasn’t making any sense no choice he always had a choice “Don’t leave me” I say as I turn to face him and like a puff of smoke he was there and then gone forever.

I hear a knock on my door and walk toured it I secretly hoped that it was him coming home at last but I new that he was never coming back as I opened the door and saw the police man standing there.
