Ghosts

Breathe in, darling, and don’t forget to breathe out.

The night is ending, and all the candles have gone out.

Say your good byes, and say your prayers.

Kill the lights and kill your thoughts,

tell your heart it still has time,

that it doesn’t have to race for the daylight.

Lay down softly, and rest easy,

breathe and count from ten to one.

Try not to see their faces when you close your eyes,

try not to hear their voices as you drift into sleep.

You are alone and you know you will  be,

step away, and leave all their ghosts and yours behind.
