Ghost - Alexander Thomas

I fell in love with a ghost, 

And I couldn't stay awake. 

I held oblivion 

Of the chaos she would make. 

I fell in love with a ghost, 

And slowly, I'd create 

Every single attribute, 

From how she spoke to what she ate. 

I fell in love with a ghost, 

And once she was created, 

I resolved to find this soul; 

Only then would I be sated. 

I fell in love with a ghost, 

And soon would I discover 

That not a single spirit 

Could be this kind of lover. 

I fell in love with a ghost, 

Who filled my eyes with mist. 

For I fell in love with a ghost, 

And ghosts do not exist.
