GhostLikeDesign Passes Away At 21

Published May 17, 2020



It saddens us to announce that Erzsebet Nyitrai, known professionally as GhostLikeDesign, has passed away at the age of 21.


Considering herself a "loner of sorts", Nyitrai suffered from a nervously induced melancholy. It was because of this condition, the poet often turned to drugs and self-harming, with the latter resulting in her death on May 17, 2020.


An experimental writer, Nyitrai began uploading her works on this site in late March of 2020. She was known for writing her poems in a haunting, pessimistic, tense and stark style, with the motifs of an obsession with death and loneliness, being the main focal points. Her later works would adopt hendecasyllabic verse.


Among the poets she adored, Shikibu Gion was the biggest inspiration on Nyitrai and her works, as seen in the composition of her poems, the imagery and subject matter, and even a tribute poem dedicated to the late Shikibu Gion. Other writers that would influence Nyitrai would be; Friedrich Nietzsche, Renée Vivien, Samuel Beckett, Elise Cowen, Ana de Noailles, and John Donne.

Profile Information

hello my fellow poets and writers.

my name is erzsebet nyitrai.

but you may call me GhostLikeDesign.

i was brought into this world on 18 november 1998.

as long as i can remember, i've always found comfort in expressing myself in words written on paper, rather than words spoken. my temper at times is unpredictable and i tend to push people away in the real world. this may contribute to me alienating myself from others. i don't know.

more than anything, i consider myself a loner.

drugs and self-harming are a part of my life, much to the dismay of my family. and although i don't condone the use of drugs, i do reference the concept of suicidal ideation heavily in my works.

that may be a trigger for some, so know that you've been forewarned and i take no responsibility on the actions of others upon subjecting yourself to my material.

while a majority of my content is taken from how i feel on a daily basis, i'm inspired by a few writers who, in my opinion, are the epitome of expressing their emoptions.

friedrich nietzsche, rénee viviensamuel beckettelise cowenana de noailles, and john donne.

over the years, i have obsessively devoured all of the literature of the aforementioned writers, while meticulously designing my own craft.

just when i assumed i was the only one of my kind, along comes a poet named shikibu gion.

from the very first sentence i read, i was truly enamored. who was this person? why was our writing so similar in many ways, that it was eerie?

the more of her poems i read, the more my curiosity was piqued.

but as most of you know, the poet known as shikibu gion, passed away on january 2, 2020.

at first, confusion set in my brain. why would someone so talented and inspiring just leave behind a corpus of unfinished work? why had she given up?

it was then that i knew that my choice to question her decision wasn't mine. it wasn't for her family. it wasn't for a fan. it wasn't for anyone.

shikibu gion influences me in ways i don't expect anyone to understand, and i will continue to live on for her and protect her legacy at all costs.

wherever you are shikibu, we miss you.
