a lonely ghost
a light, flickered out
the one I left on for you
how often do we wish upon people
that do not wish for us
when do we turn out the lights
and walk away from the dark
on our own volition
upon belief that ghosts only haunt us
when we keep them around

Your haunting imagery leaves me to wonder whether lights out means letting go of people we have grown apart from or perhaps something darker. Whatever the personal meaning behind your words, you have set the gears of my mind turning with thoughts and fears of losing people I who had once loved me. I have lost people who have once loved me, or maybe they were always lost.
Thought provoking piece. Thank you.
Wow. Beautifully put and very true. ❤
