Homeless Ghost

~

I am an ethereal nomad,

a homeless ghost,

and deep within my heart

is where I need

salvation the most,

yet I go unnoticed,

with nobody left to haunt,

my ribcage a

barren landscape,

my features pale and gaunt,

and you will not see me

as I sink into saudade,

and this profound feeling

of melancholy

leaves me bereft

and greatly scarred

by the wounds

that cover my chest,

the wounds that never healed,

and now that nobody wants me,

there is no reason left

to conceal

my pain.
