Phantoms in my head

Contributed by redwest802 on Sunday, 9th October 2016 @ 02:07:12 AM in AEST
Topic: StoryPoetry

A phantom spoke softly,
late one cold, dark night.
He showed me what I could be,
he showed me inside, I had the fight,

He placed his hand, bony and taunt,
On my shoulder, it felt cold.
He whispered to me, Terry, my friend,
you are brave, strong and bold.

I stood on my feet, not knowing why,
but he held me in his gaze.
He Mesmerised me and I could/'/nt defy his will.
His power so strong, I was amazed.

I tried to break about then,
from his iron grasp.
I tried so hard but no, alas,
I could not break his clasp.

He held me there so I could not move,
could not stray from him.
He showed me in my minds eye,
how to start again.

So, I took his advise, and What else could I do.
I new he must be right.
I must live my life, till the end of my days,
To be happy and content, I/'/ll fight!

I thanked that Phantom gracefully,
I thanked him for my life
I see what he has done for me,
I am ready to face all strife!

My strength has grown stronger now,
I know I can move on.
I still miss you with all my heart, Kathleen,
You were a beautiful, amazing, But now Gone.........

Terry West

It is not easy to find the strength to go on , the departed leave a big chasm in our life, an emptiness that lingers for such a long time,
Fortunately you now have the strength to take life by the reins again.
Good luck
