Ghosts

In the shed

Where you left your unfinished projects

And stashed your toys

That you couldn’t take with you.

Ghosts in the closet

Where you kept your party shirts

That you only wanted when

you were with me.

Ghosts

In the back room

Where you hung out the most,

Your quiet place

Where you went to heal

And play music.

Ghosts in the yard

Where you kept the pieces

Of our unfinished dreams,

The boat parts for the sailboat

We would use to make our escape

Into our life together

Ghosts everywhere

Past remnants of a future

Never realized

What do I do with these ghosts?
