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 ‘fifty-one’,

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.
