Pale Pale Ghost

Pale pale ghost
what brings you to my bedroom
I've seen your face of death
I've felt your eary presence
And once again
to this commited body
You stand before my soul
distorting my wits

What is your purpose tonight
of provoking my living dream?
To look at me so fixedly
with those Vermillion orbs
I cannot for the life of me
understand your purposes
What is that I can do for you?
What is it that you can gain?
Why is it that you hover
whispering into my mind
the words that make me shake-
"Do not that road take"

Pale pale ghost
that sings the song of doom
My lungs do race for breath
My heart does beat for blood
and once again
You make me pause
to look upon my span
to shift upon my steer

Grave spectre begone!
Consume thy own self away
I'm but an unripe coiled soul,
bitter for the tongue of thee
that lunges abroad for prey
to quench an eternal thirst
If you were but by morals
You'd sustain youself only
upon the morsals of evil
you've made a mistake coming
interupting my stirring dreams
with only these words to spake-
"Do not that road take"

Pale Pale ghost
looming beside my bed and I
you gaze into my glazed eyes
you probe into my every dream
And once again
floating above the ground
made of dusty white air
you linger dimmed

You can only be uncertainty!!
choices are mortal facets
such to compose all dreams
with which I shall tread beyond:
the empire of my heart
bestowed to an angel's care
has hinged me to true heaven
that lies upon clouds of love
Bound in dreams forever with her
My sleep shall forever be saved!




 "...no single sound too rude    
Upon thy slumber shall intrude,
Our thoughts, our souls- O God above!    
In every deed shall mingle, love."
--Edgar Allen Poe (from Serenade)

Heck, I was wondering where my ghost went.  Haven't seen him in a few days, but don't worry - you can keep him...LOL
