Ghosts

the risen specters
once buried
in the graveyard of memories
now haunt my every step
make my heart race
pull me in
embrace me
with beautiful dreams
as tears cascade
you run through my veins
a toxic chemical
lethal
a drug
irresistible
a touch
electric
a feeling
unshakable
as memories are seared
to my skin
my mind
my heart
like tattoo ink
forever carried
shall slowly return
to the earth
while spirits are laid to rest
in the graveyard of memories
