Flesh Wound

Ghost in the attic,

please won’t you stay.

Your silhouette softens more

day by day.

Apparition in the attic,

Don’t go today;

lie with me in good company

and help me welcome the day.

Phantom in the attic,

Hide-and-seek is what you play.

You’re feeling less social

more and more each and every day.

Spirit in the living room,

I will not lead you astray.

Don’t follow the empty footprints;

I left for you that day.
