Haunted by a Ghost of Me

22 Oct

I am a phantom to myself,

and oh how I do haunt me,

both day and night.

 

Rattling rat a ling chains

and

shrieks sh rie ks in

the night.

 

Scary sluthing

sluth in g scar e

Something scary

some th ing scare eye

 

I watch myself

(a ghost)

float on by, bye bye b y e b y e

myself in horror, my head in

my hands.

 

Rattling rat a ling chains

and

shrieks sh rie ks in

the nigh

nigh t.

 

Things fly across                            the room

 

Scary sluthing

slu th in g scar e e

Something scary

some th ing scare eye

 

I watch myself

(a ghost)

float on by, bye bye by e b y e

myself in horror, the horror

head in my hands.

 

I swear I am alive

ALIVE

A live

A lie

maybe (?).

 

Late at night I haunt myself

my self m eye s elf

a spect er in the dark d ark.

My darkness dark ni ss

filled f  ill ed

with shriek ing moans mo an s,

and as I lay l a y myself m e

to sleep I’d pray p ray

the Lord Lor D

my soul so ul

to keep,

 

(just like my Momma

Ma ma taught me)

 

but I am no longer certain

I can

(can I)

pay that fee.
