Ghostly

Gaunt I’ve become from lying without a fight – hiding behind the simple phrase It’s alright

Haunted by my response, I know now this is not true – taking care of me is what I going to do.

Ostracized from who I thought I had to be had been building walls around the one thing that always saved me.

Spinelessly engrossed in the audience’s disapproval, wordless I disappeared into the night’s removal.

Taunted by whispers of inner chilling fright – (I gave into the)

Lies of silence from the things I could not write.

Yesterday disappeared like a ghost’s unnerving flight, its spectral hopes dead to expectation’s shallow spotlight.
