a ghost stands at my window
angered by the morning storm
his solemn voice rides on the chill
that wraps around the dawn

he fights against the cock crow
for in its song he dies
and as the sunrise smothers him
I’m lost inside his eyes

which every night in moonglow
return to torment me
the knowledge that one sundown
I too will be as he.
