I am haunted inside,
there's a ghost upon my heart
repelling love

and I
I am frightened
by this specter
who rasps of malady
yet somehow I feel secure

my soul calls to you
in it's translucent skin,
but no one (not even God)
can save me
from being absorbed within

these bones 
they squeak and bellow
like an older home
yet I
I am only 32
with barely a pen 
to hear me

    Never underestimate the power of the Man upstairs. I know couples who are all alone and singles who have never felt lonliness. Good write. Vince
