I had a baby with a ghost

I had a baby with a ghost

although I hate to admit it

the passion involved was never real

and the spirit was never committed.

*

I had a baby with a ghost

his pale skeleton hands reach me

I wish now that my vision was clear

to see that nobody was home, or near.

*

I had a baby with a ghost

strangers ask where is he now?

I had a baby with a phantom but how?

I try to evade the questions

whilst I gulp loneliness

and acid drips in my stomach

to the illusion

of being through constant confusion

being spooked by his hallucination

falling into complications

unscathed by his see through suffocation…

I had a baby with a ghost.
