Ghost Introducing Itself

1
You don't know me
but often I lie down beside you
I hover above when you walk
I breathe down your neck when it's cold
(Yes, you might say, I'm creepy)

I sit beside you
when you are in the train
I am the uninvited passenger in your car
and you throw your things on my lap

I am the one, sometimes in a spirit of mischief,
who moves your keys and you search about
and say, "I'm sure I placed them in the drawer"
Then you find them under the table
(and you wonder if you need more memory tablets)

I hug you sometimes
(you might feel some desire arise in you then,
and you wonder why)
and I run my finger down your spine

2
I don't show myself
because you may not take me seriously enough -
or you just might take me too seriously

In the ghost world, we don't think
you beings in your world know enough moderation
but we love your living skin
