A Poem by KeeD

Spectre beyond the horizon

The familiar voice in my head

An enchanting sort of poison

Kickstarting a heart that's dead


Invoking a phantom of memories

Drowning in galactic tides

Resurfacing after centuries

Yet my heart still hides


Apparition set precedence

In converting my mortal soul

Make my vessel your residence

Take my body under your control


Be the ghost that guides me

Deep in the dark, through your light

My phantasm, set me free

From loves confusing fight

The poem spoke to me more about the Self and how the Self can be a saviour against the destructive vibes of a bad love. The first verse has an elating effect with the enchanting poison. In the second verse, the phantoms of centuries old memories could be of my own soul recycled through many births. The third and fourth verses could be I asking my powerful, mystical Self to prevail upon all thats dark and to be my guiding light. I am convinced all answers one seeks, lie within the Self.

A very thought provoking poem Keegan and I admire the way you maintain the form and structure of a poem in the face of the most difficult subject.

Related a lot with the write! You are welcome Keegan.
i am not sure we can ever escape love---or the ghosts of love, i think we just learn to live with them, and not be so scared----
love the analogies used here---yes, make body your abode---you will whether i want you to or not.

nicely done, Kee--
