Poem -

Then she was gone....

Then she was gone....

There she stood in my room last night.... I guess I ought to have been afraid, yes I should have got fright.... but strangely enough as I gazed at her face, her eyes didn’t see me, she was stuck in another place....

Lost in her solace that expression said it all.... her shadowy silhouette  on my bedroom wall....She had grey hair which looked in a mess as it covered her bony shoulders ontop of her dress....

Well it wasn’t really a dress I think she wore a velvet gown but Oh her sorrow showed through that saddening frown....I sensed her stories from bygone years... she looked lost in my room from her visible tears....

Alas my vision blurred with my staring too much... I wish now I had spoke or I should have went to touch.... but tho time stood still,  it wasn’t long enough to think... then she was gone.... my ghost vanished in a blink....

What a surreal moment that would be Jill!  ....to see and feel the lost spirit of one gone, but truly gone in essence there.  I can understand why her fear subsided to a more curiosity and empathetic view.  Great write! xo ;)

Jillyfish, 
It's a great one! If Cheerie responds, you know it's good(she's the Reverend of Romance, you know). 
Anyway, I loved it! It gave me chills. Was it a true vision from last night? 
Great write, as always, my friend!! 

Matthew.

Oh good, I'm glad Jillian. 
Last night I dreamt of a giant apparition-like woodchuck, and it was scolding me for it's inability to chuck wood...it was harrowing. I woke up in a wood pile, in Parsippiny. 
I'm glad you're OK! 

Matthew.
