I can feel arms around me

Ghost embraces

Cold kisses

For an icy comfort

Shadows of your boney fingers

Between my fingertips

I can hear your faint whispers

Reciting prose and poetry

More eloquent and romantic

Than anything you said aloud

Through walks in windy crags

Your presence keeps me warm

Walking the blanketed mountains

You leave no footprints

I prefer the company of ghosts

Please, haunt me

If only to hear

An empty voice

Wispy whispers

Hollow footsteps


To feel

An ethereal embrace

From fingers without feeling

A heart without a beat

From our lifeless love

To come this tenuous rapture

Adieu, my paramour

My disembodied darling

And dearly departed
