Ten million raindrops
Streets painted city colors
Red at the light.

Old friends found again
Old Ghost found substance
Old haunting found dissipation…
Old Ghoul found prowling.

-I remember when she told me-
-When I was in all directions-
-Deep, above, behind, inside-
-Head Over Heels, she said-
-Perhaps too hard to reconcile-
-Perhaps too inconvenient-
-Perhaps her Ghoul gave her no rest-
-Perhaps haunted her too much…-
-Although I was lost then-
-Distant past – distant memory –
-The passion and pain burned-
-Haunted me in thought and dream-

Ghoul sighted and marked
A fresh fire swept over me
And then I felt the rain.

-Washing down the earth and me-
-And with it life, and memory-
-All is made anew-
-All is made for me-
-All is for me to make anew-
-I see-

Breathe and release
Repeat and add a smile…
Green at the light.
