Ghost of You

Posted on Sep 5, 2012


I was thinking of you today
How you have changed in weeks
Different from our yesterday’s
A new life it seems you seek

But you’re not the same
Changed beyond recognition
Maybe it’s just a phase
In your total vilification

You are no longer you
But someone else entirely
You are the ghost of you
And I don’t like what I see

Leave the anger and loathing behind
Stop with the self-pity
It the goodness and faith you need to find
You just have to once again believe

Come back to us quickly
Turn away from the darkness
Before you’re devoured completely
And lost forever to us
