The Ghost in the Window



A kitten claws the leafy trees,

A rogue wolf’s deep regret.

Love with you an ocean breeze,

A heart that’s soaking wet.


Then I heard a purring cat,

A tune for the day ahead.

I turn on the thermostat,

And stumble out of bed.


I feel like an aquarium fish,

Swimming in a river full of spate.

I make a happy-go-lucky wish,

Because it is getting late.


Our love is fun and our love is good,

And then I wander home.

Quietly through the neighbourhood,

We talk later on the phone.


This world can be so lonely,

And when it’s dreamt alone.

Like a single ‘one and only’,

And you are all but gone.


I’m here today, the day is done,

You are moving in the shade.

Outside number 51,

Eyes peer inside our cave.


Although I squint and stare,

Something isn’t right.

There is no form and there is nowhere,

The ghost I saw tonight.


And if you’re not real, then who am I?

The echoes of what we saw?

My soul begins to bow and cry,

And I stay behind this door.
