In The Presence Of A Ghost

 

Her eyes were caves underwater

So deep she touched a man and he sinned

The needle of poison inside his heart

Just broke in half and the poison spilled

 

What a place to belong

What a place to live unfettered?

Will I see when you’re gone

That it never really mattered?

Was I wrong, was I right?

Did we fall before we faltered?

Was to say that we tried

All we ever really wanted?

 

They yearned for things no one wanted

And spoke in words no one understands

And every night crickets chirped and cried

About the purpose of their intents

 

What a place to belong

What a place to live unfettered?

Will I see when you’re gone

That it never really mattered?

Was I wrong, was I right?

Did we fall before we faltered?

Was to say that we tried

All we ever really wanted?

 

Sometimes a memory comes back

And I get shivers down my neck

Like in a presence of a ghost or from a cold draft

I wish our lives were houses

I wish I never let you go

I wish the past was just a room a few feet below

Now I bawl and claw and crawl

Now I bawl and claw and crawl

 

You stared into the distance

It offered little resistance

The menace hid like a cheating spouse

You never looked back, not once

The flowers in my dreams

Grow in circles around the graves

Don’t be sorry for death redeems

Remorse’s how the evil preys upon you

I warned you

I warned you

I warned you
