Musical Ghosts

Musical Ghosts

A Poem by M.Kilani
"

Free-style poetry

"
The musical ghosts are awake
Pulling me out of my wicked dreams
With a scream of a newborn hope
On the ruins of mystical yesterday
Into a well-known tomorrow
Where I worship honor
Where I neglect a face and a body, of nobody.

The musical ghosts are awake
Releasing my freewill as they suppress my needs
Burning sorrow into ashes
Bittersweet ashes of my enemies, ashes of my fears
Strumming strings of a nylon reality
Making a funeral at every last ring
And the ghosts still sing.

The musical ghosts are awake
Watching over me as I rarely sleep
Watching over my empty grave
As they count all that I gave
Can they worship the wind
Can they worship her body
As my scars heal another skin
As I drown into solitude, as I walk away from sin

The term musical ghosts seem to have great impact on thoughts and life. I like the lines above. Had the feel of some kind of karma being observed. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Your poem arrested my sense and sensibilities all at once ! The poem is piercingly gorgeous with hues of subtle vulnerability. The use of metaphors aptly expressed and imagery is well-balanced.

The poem is a perfect balance of light and shadow - of us mortals who oscillate in redemption and sins, I reckon both needed in the essence of human-life. Last line captures my heart and seeps into the soul. What an expression, dear Kilani. Cheers
