Confessions Of A Ghost

underneath a canopy of stars
only known by the universe
(there are so many….you see)
she waits…..

black silence permeates her mind
dusk is way past brand new
and she is stumbling on a dark pitch
neon lights glow inside her
                          (though seldom seen)
the eyes of a mask
pushing through the empty
               of a thousand masquerades

buried ghost of white light
hurried sounds of footsteps
and wells of blue ink burrow
                       beneath skin to fragile
as she trembles from the recall
                (inching in with devils claws)
somewhere she remembers
                  yet always on the outside
she stumbles in the night time

oh how it taunts  her lips
                    for just one taste
of sweet spring water
the luscious strawberry linger
as she suffers dehydration
quick flashes flicker past
and the stars call up a whisper
                she runs 
but remains motionless
              (feet glued to solid ground)

she waits…..

willow….weep for her
with your weeping boughs
                   (do you remember?)
for no one else can hear her
in the shadows of a maple
in a country full of desert
(muted by judging mouths)
            she cannot speak out truth

spirit sounds frolic
like fairies in the night
dancing in the wasteland
of what she thought was home
and she….lost inside the twinkle
of a billion lights that shimmer
with the mockery of reminiscence

underneath a canopy of stars
only known by the universe
(just too many….you see)
she waits…..

always she waits….

    OWWWOOOOO. What an imagination! Christie, you are such fun, but you make me work so hard. What does it take?....at least a dozen readings....well worth it. I can see, the reader must get up among the stars to understand. This spook, I would say, is the universal, all seeing shade, quite useful for all sorts of haunting. If I missed everything, dear, Christie, please let me know. Love, daver

    We are but specks in the universe, "stumbling in the night." This is exactly how I feel when I look up at the night sky -- "lost inside the twinkle of a billion lights." Excellent writing, Christie!

    What are "You" waiting for dear? And why must "Your Beautiful Heart" suffer? Why do "You" allow this meloncholy of seemingful hopelessness to flourish and somehow try and remain? I have myself watched "You," go from a pretty good writer, to an extremely great writer, within the course of just a mere few months of time!!!!:):):)....cont....

    Hi Christie... I have to agree with MR HIGGINS.... haunting.... if I read this too often... it would break my heart... the layers and depth in this poem are profound in their sadness... and cut right through to the readers soul... and so only demonstrates "once again" the "remarkable" talent you have as a poet.... there is an indescribable essence of sorrow in this poem that left me with a burning throat and watery eyes.... KUDOS !

    Wow, Christie....magic words (a thousand masquerades..) wow...too many amazing lines to know which one grabs me the most...you do this with such perfection...I bow to you, Miss Moses! Exquisite and rather melancholy...

    a maple tree in a country full of desert...thats kind of like wielding a fork in a land of soup...stabbing at substance but flailing through broth. I feel the discontent and frustration in the words here!! Great write Miss Christie! Love, Me
