Time Honoured Ghosts

Time Honoured Ghosts

 
They haunt but I am not afraid
For they may not approach
Coming near only when I beckon
The pain and sorrow once all consuming
Is cast into the mists of time past
Emotions once so raw and terrifying
Are summoned forth only in spirit
Cold and aloof: happily now
Simple images of a distant life
Words not feelings
Telling tales of what once was
Myths and legends of
Time honoured ghosts
