Torn asunder
Brutal waves of hope
Dissolve as soon as they
Hit the ground

I hope I made, a dent in you
I hope you paused, if only for a second glance
I am not a shade!
I am not ephemeral!

New faces abound
Disappear as I reach out to them
Laugh as I fall through
Laugh as you move just out of reach of me.

Faces strewn across my floor
Names that make no sense anymore!
I’ve been a ghost since I was five,
No one told me I had died.
