Ghosts

I was chasing a ghost

I got caught in the lure of it

I saw the glimpses of what it used to be

And in that ghost I found you

It stood there making me aware that

What was lost should stay there

Dead as if it were asleep

I was chasing a ghost

I got caught in the lure of it

I chased the ghost until it stopped moving

When I finally caught the ghost I was

In awe of it

The density it had

The complexity it gave me

I stopped chasing the ghost

The ghost is me
