haunted

Every night around midnight
(if I'm in bed on time)
I am haunted by the banshees
appearing in my mind!

But the ghosts I see aren't dead things
or the spirits of old,
but rather all of the unwritten words
and the stories left untold!

So...

I give these apparitions recognition...

get up...

move around...

and...

Every night around midnight
I light the fuse to the muse that used to taunt me
back when the blankness once did daunt me
and the ghosts that sought to haunt me
with my pen I give them home.
I give them room to move,
empty my soul and am whole.

I capture these ghosts and interact,
and they interact with me.
