Ghosts Of A Life Past

Ghosts Of A Life Past

A Poem by jex

Elusive painted walls,

Spider web thin figures,

Early morning sun rising to illustrate an empty room

 

The only free given thought,

And empty liberation,

Comes from the open-minded thoughts of one who is not there anymore

 

Photographs lay strewn about,

An attempt to disguise,

The truth behind a world that no one remembers anymore

 

Old blood red stains on the floor,

A shattered window,

Only illustrate the darker side of a past once sacred

 

The moldy ceiling,

And the light that still flows into the room,

Only give the slightest remaining details of ghosts of a life past

a mean outlook towards the very experience of dialouge, the scene paints images that shock and sooth at the same time, well done, great read.

VERY CREATIVE AND THOUGH PROVOKING. THIS POEM IS INTERESTING BECAUSE IT REALLY MAKES YOU WONDER ABOUT THE PAST THE GOOD AND THE BAD EXPERIENCES WE LEFT BEHIND. YOU PAINT A VERY VIVID PICTURE. GREAT WRITE.
