I might be a ghost

I might be a ghost

A Poem by livicote

Inspired by the dreams I used to have that I was a ghost... I stopped having the dreams once I interpreted them to mean that I just don't feel like I relate to anyone and that I'm an "outsider."

I might be a ghost.
I whisper and wander about
looking sadly on the naive "living"
as they waste their lives away.
My life is not over-
just apart.
I watch, learning, and I listen.
There are those that see me, and I like them,
but what they see-
a mere outline, a silent gray specter-
is not what I am.
I might be a ghost, but how would I know the difference?
I've never seen a true life.
