You are the ghost

This post is part of a series called 100 Days of Poetry.

Am I afraid of ghosts? (Laughs to self)

Oh honey. They’re my favorite companions. Fables of another time, prophets of love, legends of time. 

They tell the BEST stories. They’re our entire collection of fear, packaged as lessons in love.

They tell you your favorite version of the worst story over and over again like kids around a campfire. By the end of your disassociation: you end up the hero of your own horror.

Showing you the way back to your own self. She’s here, she’s there. She’s everywhere. 

You are the ghost.
