Ghosts

I lived with a ghost
And a ghost lived with me
We tried to keep each other
To keep each other company

I could see right through them
They could see through me
Together we grew distant
We grew distant like a memory

They could see my heart
Though theirs was hidden deep
I learned to hide mine over time
And there it stays in sleep

Flesh and bone is all we are
With souls as light as feathers
It’s only our thoughts that keep us
For a short while bound together
