Ghost Guitar

                               Ghost Guitar

I think of you and play you, any time of day
You understand my needs, understand what I must say 
You’ve always been so close to me, been a cherished friend
You’ve always been there for me, and will be till the end

You know my moods so very well, you know when I am blue
You pluck a tune from out the air and make me play with you
Then we will strum a rock song or a golden oldie tune
Then I know it won’t be long, till I’m lifted out of gloom

Ghost            guitar               in               my            hands

I know that people laugh, when they see me tug your strings
But they don’t know the happiness that our duetting brings
You take me off to places where the memory lays sublime
We travel through the years, back and forth in time

And when my baby’s far away and I’m left all alone
It’s you I cradle in my arms and know my songs are blown
By the winds of love, across the earth, the mighty sea
Knowing she will hear them, and hurry home to me
 
Ghost           guitar                in                my            hands
Ghost           
                    guitar  
                                              in  
                                                                 my            hands  
                                                                                  da da da

    Hiya Petal, you do make me laff, I've told you in the past if you don't see a new one not to bother with me lol I always knew your time was limited. My life is a little chaotic at mo, I'll mail you and tell you when it looks like you're having a quiet spell haha, if that ever happens. Thanks for the visit

    just clicking all over the place and can't find one I have not seen already. But this one I remember liking a lot. I got a kick out of your remark. yep, I am NO SUCKER. You should see me when someone gives me a lollipop. After a few seconds I am biting into the dang thing.(wonder my teeth have not fallen out yet)

    Hello Richard, I am doing fine, and still enjoying who I can on here. I'm on the fritz right now. I got so much in my path.. and only one of me to figure it all out.. naughty or not, I manage. I do need a vacation.. you never know I might end up around your area.. always your sweetest and darkest poet... xox~ LINDA

    I am with you all the way with this one, although I am merely a strummer, I have loved that old guitar for a lot of years, Beautifully written. Thanks for sharing Richard

    Thanks for your comment below Richard. The only reason you weren't in my favorites sooner is that I hadn't read enough of your work. Naughty is okay with me, that's one of the reasons I was a fan of Freddie's he didn't hold back. I appreciate that you speak well of him, it adds to the respect I have for you as a person. Thanks so much for your visits.

    a picture painted. music, to be able to make sweet music either by playing or words this you have done Linda

    Moving piece. So many emotions envoked in this. I am an acoustic fan. Love guitar music and calms the restless soul. You have blended this guitar relationship to perfection.

    Oh Richard...makes me long for one of my family get togethers, everyone bringing their fiddles, guitars,harmonicas...you'd fit right in...this is great...music is great alone or with others..:-)

    Happy you enjoyed this Donna, is always nice to know something you write hits a spot for someone, I'm sure I'd fit in nicely with your fam, always a pleasure to see you here

    This one goes to my favorites and also elevates you to one of my favorite poets. This is a very special piece. I like the idea of going forward and backwards through time. Music truly does have the capacity to transport us.

    We all love music, no doubt about that, for me it's constantly in my head, one tune or another. I'm very honoured to be entered into fave list Richard, I consider it an elevation indeed. Sometimes my writes are a little on the naughty side, I hope the poets in here are open minded enough to accept my odd one offs lol. BTW, You've been in my fave list a long time.

    Echinopsis Multiplex is my favourite flower, but they only bloom in the exact right conditions (bit like you) they are a trumpet shape, they look like upside down wedding dresses, soft white, I've grown them over a foot long and they only last a few days. They are a desert plant, I love many plants, orchids among them though I don't specialize in those I do have one or two in my collection

    So I'm correcting this stack of essays, but I pause to look up the significance of orchid! Why orchid, Richard? Is it your favorite flower?

    I sometimes make up my own words, especially when I forget the proper ones lol, thanks for the fave my Desert Orchid, always an honour that

    I feel the same way - but with piano. Such a warm feeling to play on familiar chords, familiar songs... even the way you formatted it, I couldn't help but imagine the song playing out in my head (as if these were lyrics and not just a poem). Good work!

    reminds of that thing, what is it called? Air guitar? and yet much deeper than that!! this is unique and very interesting poetry about nostalgia. I really enjoyed it.

    Oh Sara no, in no way was I saying I didn't like it. I just thought it warranted a little more adding. The lines are wonderful. I'll have to make myself better understood in future. I'm taking another look to see if I cobbled my comment that badly lol.

    boo! lol... could not resist :-) on a serious note. I love the melody that floats around. reaching that certain someone. You stain the wind pretty good my poet friend. Sounds very nice. This poem reminds me of a guy who enjoyed playing invisible drums. ~In his heart, he always played good, ~silently~ always smiling and looking up. Now I wonder to whom he was beating them tunes to. I like the imagery for sure. It pleases me to know you play the ghost guitar, for a certain someone. :-) xox~ Linda
