Song of The Dead

written by: Christine E. Ray



I have learned to carry
my ghosts
with reverence
slip them gently
into my pockets
cradle them close
to carotid pulse
the most loyal
of my companions
lulled by the steady beat
of my survivor’s heart
borrowed touches through
my fingertips
stolen glances
through my eyes
I am filled with
whispered secrets of
the dead
haunting and
haunted still
