that Ghost lover

that Ghost lover

A Poem by Latifa

memories as I see them, enjoy.



Are a ghost lover we snuggle in our lonesome beds,

A ghost of whom we see,

A ghost of whom we welcome his surprising visits.

Whether wearing a salty suit or a flourish one,

We welcome his company.

With all his different suits,

We love his company.

His  different suits are

better  than those naked, bland hours of tik tok.

At least we’ll enjoy a cup of tea  in his company,

making  the air so wholesome,

we converse back and forth.

Within his  invisible dimension, we travel

Loosely,with no seat belts



no gravity hold us back in his company.

 So We snuggle that ghost lover because

His  snuggle are needed,

 His cuddles are sensual

They are our daily dose of  survival.

The ghost lover made all the more real by a whole plethora of 'suits'
- love the line - '...better than those bland hours of tik tok..." - such yearning !
A great piece Latifah.

This was a really cool metaphor, and fun to read. I liked the idea of the different suits especially.

This is beautiful. I love the personification and the form of it works nicely.

We make memories along the way, some become haunting and some liberating. We dream in them , we snuggle along them, then they become conversations between. An excellent write , )

I suppose that knack is choosing your memories well. Gorgeous write, Latifa.

We all have that ghost lover... we seek to hold, just in our imaginations...

'His different suits are .. .. better than those naked, bland hours of tik tok.'

To feel that memories are ghosts is extraordinarily expressed here... because.. they haunt us, they go and come, they stay a while.. they cuddle and whisper, memories allow us to adapt our moods with smiles or regret. They are, as you say in your wonderfully created poem... ghost lovers.

And, we should all have them.. if not.. our past has been.. empty.
