She’s a ghost 

Walking through the empty walls 

People she used to know 

Seem like aliens to her 

Unending conversations 

Have turned into a struggle for words 


When did she die? 

Why didn’t they stop her? 

Maybe they did but she wouldn’t listen 

Or maybe they didn’t 

Until she became the gone girl 


Familiar faces look strange 

Fond memories have lost their fondness 

She’s a ghost 

Living, breathing, dying 

She’s lost the one thing  

That makes life worth living 


Hope to keep keeping on.
