This Ghostly Love

This ghostly love

Borrows smoke from witches’ fires

Takes bones from forgotten vaults.

Shaken between crystal stoppers

Sunlight reveals the glass is false.

This ghostly love

Sparks and sings of ivy dreams and onyx failures

Beheaded queens and ragged princes.

Pages turned in yellowed books

You feel the past on your fingers

Preserve this ghostly love!

  1. Oooh this poem is perfect for the time of the year!! You can’t go wrong with some ghost stories. Though, it makes me wonder, not all are here to haunt you… Some might just… Want to look out for people – if they are real. Love this poem!! Happy Halloween!!
