A poem about losing everything you never thought you'd lose.
Eerie moaning echoes through
the chambers of my mind.
Flickering candles
Light the neurons
I’m nervous
With unknown cause.

Deeper down,
In my heart,
A door slammed,
A window closed,
I may have screamed,
My fear took over,
And traveled.

Up a bit,
My lungs rattle like
Creaky stairs
They carry air
To my ticker
And my tricker
My mind
Inside of me

And yet I feel it,
A ghostly presence
Of who I was
Before I became myself.
