Ghosts

Leave a comment

Rekindle the lantern at twilight-
push back the ghosts of nights past,
nights spent lost in one another.

Repel the wraiths of promises,
breathlessly spoken-
wordlessly broken.

Chase these shadow-dance figures
of lovers entwined away,
from where I stand
longing for dawn
that never comes.
