The Gist

He comes to her within the night
mere shadow of the man
that she once knew
seeking once again to enter
there into the core
of her existence.

Yet her soul will not abide
his ghostly presence
for love lives within the flesh
that forms the gist
of life itself,
and his love was never
true to form at all...
