Ghosts

Poem By Raymond J Wright

Ghosts
Of lovers past
Whisper in my ear
Haunt me
While I’m sleeping

Names that I
Have forgotten...
Some I never knew

Faces
Looming above me
In my ardor, and
Lips pressed against mine
Avowed to someone else

Men who only knew me
As a body in a bed...
Knew me as a man,
Knew every inch of me, but
Never knew my name

Shadows of those moments
Follow in my dreams
Ghosts of lovers past
Bring me to my knees

Comments about Ghosts

I finally got in here to read your poem, and my guess was right...it was truly haunting. I can invision those faces! Very well written. Blessings. Sheila

Sanctuary, Solace (Tactile Explorations)

Kisses, more than sublime
Give me life
Give me light that shines
Now give me all that we are

A Song Of The Season

And the snow falls down
We watch it through the window
Gently draping all in pristine, unbroken white...

For Shawn

Yesterday it was spring,
Today I find winter
Has swept across the land, and tonight
I see your face, lean and hard

He Drove All Night

I awaken to the sound
Of morning music:
Your deep, soothing voice
Singing in the shower

John

My head in my hands,
Your name on my lips

And the icy winter wind

Joys And Sorrows

Time
heals all wounds
or maybe,
It hides our scars
