Ghost Lover

He taunted and he teased
while in reality, he left her
all alone to bleed to death.
And truly, he had nothing
left to lose, or so he thought;
never realizing that her love
of him had brought him back
to life within totality of living.

Shocked and stunned,
amazed to find himself
without a platform to stand on;
and then the fall began.
His scream was shattering,
for suddenly he knew full well
the gift of loving grace that
he'd once held and thrown away.

While there within reality,
the price he paid became
his shattering. Heart hammering
within his chest, they sped him
to the hospital again - while in
his dream, her 'fare thee well'
somehow became the mighty
pain within his chest...
