    Haunted

    If if I were to run faster
    could I outrun a ghost?
    Or if I walked backwards
    could I hold it once more?

    Every waking moment
    feels like sleep.
    Waiting for my eyes to open
    to your gaze staring back at me.

    No way to pass the moments,
    without passing the thought of you.
    I want to hold a moment.
    Holding your hand-
    holding mine too,
    but they always let go.

    The day is too bright
    but not light enough to see.
    Time too long,
    but not slow enough,
    to bind you
    to me.

    The moments haunt me,
    each step
    following
    the future I cannot have.
    The moments taunt me,
    each day
    wallowing
    in a past that I wish I could have
    now.

    Could I have you in this life?
    No
    Perhaps the next?
    Only the end of time will show.

    Deep, profound... I really loved this poem, Shadow! Thumbs up to you!
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty
