I See the Living

by variousglimpses

I see the living

And I am haunted

Their lives are made of so much

There is much less I can do

 

I see the living

And I am haunted

The dead are empty vessels

We pour our own life into

 

And through

 

I see the living

And I am haunted

Nothing more than others lives

Do pursue my weary soul

 

I see the living

And I am haunted

Death surrounds us, never far

Waiting for us at the shoal

 

The toll

 

I see the living

And I am haunted

These ghosts of lives pursue me

Too intense in their caress

 

I see the living

And I am haunted

In life I give an answer

Shine against this lifelessness

 

Then rest
