Wraith

These were originally intended as song lyrics, but they serve a much better purpose as poetry. (That and I can’t write a song worth a damn.)

WRAITH

A burning question,

One I can’t erase.

A cloak and dagger

Behind your real face.

Are you near or am I drifting?

A lingering thought

Hollows out my mind.

Footsteps behind me

Grasp a dream sublime.

I turn to see an image shifting.

(Chorus)

Illusory…

I don’t want this anymore.

Cursory…

Sailing on an unknown shore.

Idolatry…

No longer will I adore.

Shield my eyes.

Watch the skies.

Beware the wraith.

Avoid the lies.

(End Chorus)

Were you a dreamer,

Someone I could trust?

Or a fickle ending

Turning dreams to rust?

I thought you were my destiny.

Laughing irony,

A soul’s new abode.

Lost in a sea of

Symptomatic code.

A hardened heart is my blasphemy.

(Chorus)

I walk on.

I walk on.
