Yesterday’s ghost (Friday Night Poetry Corner #247)

Good evening everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Poetry Corner. This week a very insightful poet name CatTea wrote this piece that is definitely heartfelt (well at least to me) of the human condition. The name of this poem is called “Yesterday’s ghost.”

Please visit CatTea’s blog and read more of this writer’s work.

My Disordered Self

I feel my thoughts

Pull at my limbs

Like a ghostly child

Nagging for sweets.

They are there, hovering

Not in my head,

Not current thinkings

But the after images

Of yesterday’s mind.

An entity, unknown

Not quite there but

Not quite gone.

The remnants of a nightmare

That stays the next day.

Do I invite it back in

To console and calm it,

Or do I attempt exorcism?

It scares away sleep,

Banishes hope.

Leaves me alone with it

Empty.
