Ghost Girl


Ghost girls don't cry,
ghost girls don't hurt,
this is a ghost town
and I'm a ghost girl.
I've tried, I've really tried,
but in trying I've faded away,
in trying I've died.
It's easier to see,
it's easier to be
through ghost girl eyes.

Ghost girls don't cry,
ghost girls don't feel,
I can survive
because this pain isn't real
I can survive
as a ghost girl.

You see her on the swing,
always facing East
her hair blows in the wind
around her empty face
she'll look back at you
ghost girls aren't afraid.

She'll always walk by,
she'll always walk away,
ghost girls don't cry,
ghost girls don't feel pain
a thousand ghost girls have died
on a thousand ghost swings
but she's the only ghost girl around there
and she can't seem to get away.
Does the ghost town need a ghost girl
to try to save it?
She drops a track in the back of a truck,
a last attempt to save someone,
who says ghost girls can't feel love?
Who says ghost girls don't know the truth?
Oh, she wishes she was really dead,
but what good would that do?

Yes, it's easier to see through ghost girl eyes,
when you have to stay alive
it's easier to hear with ghost girl ears
because ghost girls don't feel fear
and ghost girls don't cry.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
