Have you ever been haunted
By love once imagined?
Not love lost, for how can one lose
What was never theirs?
The ghost of the idea of you
Haunts me.

You find your way into my bed,
Just beneath the lids,
Shut tight to hold you close
For one second longer.

Haunted by the scent
Of beans brewed
From far off forests,
My stride down 6th Ave
Shirks at the park.

Haunted by the ghost
Of your still beating heart,
Held in the arms of
Someone else.
Hopeless yearning.
I reach for you
In the dark,
Alone... again.
