The ghost tormenting me is ME.


I see it when no one does
frightful, tormenting, traumatic
I see it when no one does
A ghost
My ghost
The ghost is me
beside me within me, around me
I see it when no one does
unstoppable as I breathe life into it
I cannot kill it
oh what shame it is that in I let me be this
a demon to my own self
killing me, drowning in my own body
I see it when no one does
my internal man
my conscience
eating me up
because I lived a life of regrets
