Ghost in the Mist--By Lee Robertson--United States

Ghost in the Mist

The longings of one's heart
All but dissipated
Passionate and pale 
Encounters of the soul replaced
Within the confines
Of a near transparent shade
A grey ghost in the mist
Left alone in the dark
An imaginary blue shadow
As the dead lie in their grave
Their desires kept silent
Whilst the life inside the heart
withers, statuesque and opaque
The soul emptied of breaths stain
In a vapor fades, a wandering spirit

  1. Karen, you have found a genuine superstar in my brother Lee. We both started writing and posting on g+ at the same time,seeing this now has left a tear of joy in my eyes. I post under the name Jed Wolfe. Now we have both shown our critics how to truly bleed into our writing.

  2. Well Done Lee, Welcome to whispers,this is a wonderful community
    of poetic excellence. I look forward to reading more of your work
    in the future . Allan.

  4. Dear Lee,

    You wrote a wonderful poem, beautiful and poignant. I hope to see some more of your poetry in the future here at Whispers.

  5. Very good Lee, I imagine is the truth of every heart, as death takes ones body & he or she wonders around with out it, until his or her resurrection, as given by our Savior.
