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.

This shows that turbulent side of love, you can't shake it and this is so true. If there is a "ghost of a chance" we may have that special love forever. Some are gone but never forgotten. Memories linger. Debby, your poem is truly mystic and enchants the reader to draw them in. You remind us that this already occured or can happen in the future as your words warn..."For the ghost of love, May haunt you again..." Imaginative and fantastic reading!

This is too cool, Debby! A fair warning to those who find new love...I admit I have been there many times and that ghost just keeps on haunting ;) Very nicely written.

The image of love having a shadow is haunting by itself, then combined with the short lines of like flash card images, really gives this piece strength. I loved it. Rain..

Ah yes...a very wise warning at the end....
"So beware my friend,
When love walks in.
For the ghost of love,
May haunt you again..."

although i am sure most of are willing to take that chance for that priceless thing called love. Nicely written. Julian :)
