I Have Been Haunted

I have been haunted

i have traded one ghost for another

when I thought you couldn’t die to me again

you left

in a vapor

and i realized

you have been replaced

by another


by another!

the audacity! of my heart

to welcome

another ghost

another lover

to haunt me

tempt me


what death must i die

to haunt one of you instead

lead me to it

i will go

to haunt you in return.

to be weightless

yet to weigh on you

i cannot conceive a better revenge

than to die to you


to die

that i might haunt you instead



steam doesn't kill
