Ghost - Poem by Sam Edison

Somedays I feel like a ghost 
Sometimes I feel legendary but not in a box
Like Im at a party but I dont know the host
Alone in a world of billions but unseen
Like a ship on a foggy day entering the docks
I know that Im awake but it feels like a dream
I wish I could run away but my past holds me back
I was happy just a month ago when life was serene
So I look into the past to see what that might attract 
I hope Im remembered for the good that Ive done
But I scream out and noone seems to hear me
I hope the evil that Ive done doesnt cause them to fear me
Really I just wish that you would be near me

    Kinda shifty themes, that were maybe meant to be vague, but in my humble opinion just seem to bore. I would get a little bit stronger of a story line/theme/idea going on so that the reader can go away holding onto something solid. There are a lot of good one liners, but all the lines don't fit together very well. I'm not trying to be harsh though, because there are very good points of the poem, and I wish you the best.

    You will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it that feeling of uselessness will leave you. You will know peace. Sam believe in your future and your past can't hurt you. I love you brother. (Report) Reply
