OK. I admit it, this one’s a weird one. It was written for The Haunted Wordsmith’s Genre Challenge, see the link below:
Today’s Genre is Paranormal Romance. Not something I have written before, and I started writing a story, but for some reason, it kept rhyming, so I rewrote it as a poem instead.
Here you go.
Every night I wait here
Laying on my bed,
I can feel you next to me,
Your hand upon my head.
No one else can see you,
Though I can hear your words
To others its incoherent noise,
Like the babbling of the birds.
My love is like a radar
Tuning carefully into you,
I can sense your tender touch,
Your warmth is coming through.
You said you’d never abandon me,
And now I believe it’s true,
You’re here with me, eternally,
We’ll always be, ‘Us two’.
I find myself spending all my days
Just waiting for the time,
When I hear your ‘come hither’ call,
Those moments most sublime.
Those are the times I treasure most,
Laying tenderly with you in my bed,
Even though you are a ghost,
I love you more since you’ve been dead.
