The Haunting

Like the moon calls the ocean, when everyone's asleep
Like the night calls the day; silently
Like the love calls the young
Like death calls the weary

You called me
I'm sure you called
And I couldnt turn away
Woe is me

And now I'm here
Past the crossroads
My bridges flaming behind me
Dont turn me away, sweet; Dont turn me away?

I was sure I heard ur voice
But now you smile and turn away
And shrug and look perplxed, harrassed, in a polite way
Embarressed, I turn around. And walk back into the flames.

Like a Shadow behind me
Flickering, never going out
The ghost, of the memories, of the love
That I had imagined with you, trailing behind me

I like, particularly, the last two stanzas and relate to expectations being ghosts, trailing behind.
"and look perplexed, harrassed, in a polite way.." is painful and very clear.

Sorry that this comments things isn't doing as it should--I've been playing with the HTML, doing exactly as blogger says and look what I get. Anyway, I like your poem very much and in a way, we seem to be thinking on a similar wavelength. You will see what I mean with the poem, for good or for bad, that I plan on posting today.

Really nice name!
Lost love will be with us forever. Strangely enough the
recall of the experience never leaves.
