Now You Are a Ghost 

We used to be so close

but now you are a ghost.

Someone I hardly see.

You keep on hurting me.

.

Interested in yourself

I feel that I am shelved

in convenience for you

picked up when you want to

.

divulge all of your stress

and your unhappiness.

Never ask how I am,

don’t really give a damn.

.

Your ego always shuns.

I love you but I’m done.

Won’t beg for attention

I’ll take your rejection.

Toolbox

Sometimes life throws a

spanner in the works.

It’s always when you

think you have nailed it

.

that it wrenches at

your heart, prising it

open, cutting you with

its saw. Often it

.

will drive you nuts but

don’t bolt to go and

get hammered thinking

you’re in a state of

.

disrepair. Screw your

negativity.

All you need is a

toolbox to fix you.
