The Ghost Of My Lover

The Ghost Of My Lover

A Poem by JC


The ghost of my lover,
still remains.
In the corner of this room
and the corner of my mind.
In the minutes of light
and the hours of dark.
He haunts,
He taunts,
Of things that were
and may never become.

Hinting at the prospect of what would have been--IF?
Our past relationships always seem to live in the back of our minds or they hide in some corner to resurface at the most unwanted times.
Nice reflection on it.

You write very well. I could feel the sense of loneliness and desolation in the corners as well.

More than a poem, this is a
purging of the nostalgia that
sometimes holds the wrong
people together.
'A neat, concise little story.

Your lover, he lingers, long after he is gone through choice or circumstance. It doesn't matter, because he left his impression on you, and took a piece of you with him. Leaving you asking that damned eternal question, "What if?"
I love that he haunts, and taunts, like teasing. There isn't a yearning for him to come back, so much as you'd prefer him to be gone I think.
Nicely done, point made, in short but eloquent style.

I see this was posted around Halloween. Appropriate.

It seems like this could be extended very easily, as "things that were and never become" is enigmatic.

Though rife with sadness, this is a beautiful poem. Written very smooth and it reads wonderful.

Nicely Done!!

In the minutes of light
and the hours of dark.

I love that part cause it is true that when you are heartbroken it feel like the lonely nights last forever and day goes quickly... nice little poem.
