Ghoulish Love

ghoul

He was a distant ghost.

Existing, but never

Really there.

Pale and delusional

To the life of a woman

Who attracts

soft-spoken men.

And then there is her

Beaming face of

Naïve expectations,

Thinking he will be

Less transparent.

But how can a ghost be

Anything less than

See-through?

He promised her

Forever until death.

Even death seemed like

An unfulfilled message.

Empty offerings and

Wishful thinking was what

He gave her.

So she buried every

Sweet suffering

And tantalizing thought.

Focusing on charismatic

Corpses.

Knowing it’s unrealistic

to spend eternity with a spirit.
