The Ghost Of Love
A Poem by Debra Stevens Edwards (Debby)


The Ghost of Love(3)

Love has a shadow,
A ghost you could say.
It follows and stalks you
Each night and day.
Forget if you can
Repent if you must.
It's a taunting thing
You cannot trust.
Tortured by memories
Of beautiful things.
you'll soon hate it
and the tears it brings.
Dreams as cold fingers
Clutching your heart.
Or the glimpse of Your
face there in the dark.
Memories like that of
A spectre's touch.
A pain as in death
hurts you so much.
So beware my friend,
When love walks in.
For the ghost of love,
May haunt you again...

Wow I love this poem. It's so powerful and so, so true. Love does have a shadow, doesn't it? I never thought of it that way. I can wake up remembering a love I had 20 years ago just like it was yesterday, and it's the 'ghost,' isn't it?

Thank you for suggesting I read this. It's my day off, finally, and I want to eat poetry all day long, and yours was the first course! It got me started, or else I might have done something else.

" The ghost of love may haunt you again "
I think it is almost certain to haunt us forever.

It occurred to me as I looked at page after page
of your writing, that the best I have done is probably
the very first things I wrote.
With that in mind, I went to this poem and found it to
be absolutely beautiful. Simply written, displaying honest
and powerful emotion-----it is real.

As you write about love, you raise a spectre, an ominous
figure. That same figure lurks in the shadow of every
relationship. It can be and often is triggered by the most
minor incidents. Why ? Because we are humans with very
'frail personalities. We see shadows that do not exist. We imagine
people that never were. We are sensitive beyond reason.

Some of us survive.

Thank you,

I love the way that you wrote this, its really true, and flows smoothly.

Memories like that of
A spectre's touch.
A pain as in death
hurts you so much.

I really love that part.... reminds of the essay I did earlier this year.....
