the stars, the sea, and sleep.

A haunting ghost is more so haunted
When it is lost in the sheets,
Losing more in sleep under a heavy dream.
The clothes are clean tonight,
They lay unfolded, resting quietly.
No sleeves to pull, no collars to stiffen,
Power in indifference
Is the best gift I've been given.
I lost the score when I gave up,
Lying on the floor with green on my back
Waffles in the sky, my mind tracing back.
There's painter's tape around our trust,
I hope the memories were good enough.
