Poem: Ghosts

Remembering....


Haunted am I
by their ghosts,
not many of them really dead,
but all gone,
friends lost to time,
their life tracks crossing mine
in a wonderful
or sometimes painful connection,
some interwoven nexus
built on talk,
and time,
cups of coffee in the midnight,
the frustrated smile of that waitress at Denny’s,
Liverpool rummy at two in the morning,
story writing
and role playing,
the tapping of keys in the midnight,
building up to some bright moment,
and then
fading,
as we all found other moments.

Life goes on.

I salute you,
friends of my past,
ghosts in my memories,
as you grow close tonight,
and I light a candle in my memory,
set it adrift,
and remember.

I get these nostalgic moments...Nostalgia for me is always sad...it moved from missing people like Wicked-Oni and Alterfano, to moving people I used to know in New Orleans...sigh.

But that was yesterday. Hopefully, I have it out of my system for a bit...

Awe... It is hard when people move on to other things on the net. When that link you used to share is gone. And people moving in RL? That's even sadder... Still, you can always call them when you want to hear their voice & email them just to keep in touch.

Okay... although, I wonder if there's soemthing in the air that's got everyone feeling so angsty. *sighs*

Learning to live without our IYHed fix?

*nods* yeah... but I have found other fandoms to to keep me from missing it too much. And I did have fun romping Ban & Jak over at Inuromp. ;p And Ren's got a new comm where I can always write them if they fit the prompt, so while it's sad... I'm learning to live with it. Plus I'm excited to start posting at Kurohed. :D
