ghost in the window
ghost in the window (Photo credit: The Raggedy-man)

invisible girl

with a ghostly smile

haunted by the promise of love

rattling the chains around her heart

you denied her presence

you refused to see the spirit

invisible girl

floats into the room unseen

your icy shoulder cuts deep

reopening the gash in her soul

you murdered her hope

you strangled the dream

invisible girl

apparition at the edge of the dance

a reflection in smoke

a specter of the past

I cremated her pain

and scattered the ashes

in waves of regret
