The ghosts of us

Hopelessness
Lost now
Away

Searching

Somewhere
Nowhere
Somewhere

What returns
Is a resignation

But it hopes still
This state
Of acceptance
Never too much
Elation

Except towards
Writings from
The skies
Stars

Ghosts have gone
Already to the sky
& ghosts live
Among us too

Soap operas
Perhaps as real
As the stories
The ghosts of us
Can tell
