Ghostsong

By Michael Cunliffe

In passing half-seconds I see
Apparitions floating on air,
And in the moments between
I see beings not even there.

I see a ghost blind and adrift
In a sea of other folks’ fears,
Alone, crouching and hidden,
Counting the passing of years.

All the while I’m half awake
And yet I’m also half asleep,
Lost in nightmarish dreams 
I now realise this ghost is me.
