A Ghost That Can'T Let Go - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Sleeping in daylight
too scared to sleep at night
there's voices in my head
from people who are dead

They say that they
want to talk to me
to tell me about the past

But I don't
want to talk to them
because I know
I died with them that night

    I consider the spirits of those who passed as old friends, their visits, be them in dreams, familiar voices, or just a presence, felt...welcomed and not to be feared....rather embraced...listen to the whispers of your life. Is there pain attached to the departed? Well written and lingering....PEACE (Report) Reply

    Past keeps haunting. It's better to feel dead than listen to the ghosts. Beautifully said. Thank you Dave. (Report) Reply
