i change my feelings for someone
like a quick shower on a sunny day,
unexpected and all of a sudden.
you can be my friendly stranger
who i loved for a year.
the reality is that no one is worthy
of all of me combined.
if you are lucky
you get a piece of me to keep on your mantle
and i let myself be made into your ideal show piece
so that you could tell your children someday
that you once knew a person
who was inhabited by a ghost
who never forgot how their soul left their body.
