The Ghost in the Water by Frankie Pittaway

I am a ghost.
Shrouded by water,
And invisible to the naked eye.
I swim through the lakes with my many aqua friends.
I swim and I swim and I see with my crystal eyes.
Cold, empty but yet full of empathy.
I am a ghost through the water.
The dark, empty soul, which surrounds the mists of a dead time,
That was lost in the cosmos.
My soul is dead.
My heart no longer beating.
The friends I spoke of before are now lost.
It appears I have contradicted myself.
But yet it is only thing, which enlightens me.
False accusations.
I am the ghost in water,
Indeed I am the ghost in the water you stranger you do not need to tell me.
The soul lost to time,
And forever trapped in the darkness.
Misread signs,
And distorted minds.
I am forever in the dark,
Lost to time itself.
I prowl through the wind,
Like a wraith in the dark.
Cold and hollow,
And damaged inside.
Yes I am the ghost in the water.
The soul lost to time,
Forever in the dark.
And lost to time itself.
The lakes are flowing,
With me inside its waters.
Indeed I am the ghost in the water.
The soul lost to the time.
The prowler through the wind.
The wraith in the dark.
I am the ghost in the water,
And that is a beautiful thing to be.

Emotions are far too completed by Danielle Lyons


I scream so loud,
But to them it’s just a whisper.
An outcast from the crowd,
I’m a fly stuck on a window about to be washed off be a car wiper.

Jumping of the walls,
While I’m manic.
They’re no such things as a hurtful falls,
Life is just a sweet picnic.

I’m always too far up,
Hardly ever down.
I’m being to buildup,
I feel invisible never to fall down.

Now I’m crying in my bedroom,
Hoping I’ll be consumed.
