douglas Posted September 4, 2016 Share Posted September 4, 2016 I met the ghost of my former self today.I saw him following me,Hiding between the treesAnd groomed flower beds of the park;And I felt such compassion for him,Young, vulnerable and wistful,Merging into the dappled shadows of the avenues,A slight and frail shadow himself.And I asked,What are you looking for?And,Are you ok?But, he remained silent,His eyes averted,Seeking his shadowed camouflage.I tried to catch up to him,Tried to embrace him,But he remained constantly out of my grasp;And I cried, remembering what he had gone through the last time we were here.Eventually, he disappeared And I was left alone on a park benchPondering what I had done to hurt him.I sat and sat trying to align myself with him,Hoping that he would appear again to give Me the clarity I so needed from him today.But he did not return.
