Illo Friday: Ghost

  ghost from the past

Boxed up

I am torturing myself
Locking up myself
To a seclusion of frailty
Of my own weakness;
Of my own grief.
I have gone
Not knowing when to return
If I should return
Not knowing what’s ahead of me
Not caring.
I have crossed the boundaries
   Of my own feelings
And I detest what I have done.
What’s left of me
Is your shadow
Creeping my every move
My every breath
   Stands for you
And I have to go further
Until your image fades
But my thoughts I can’t compete
I have to destroy myself,
   Before it destroys me.


note: poem was written in May 31, 2001. illo was made today.
strange that after reading thru my old poems, i realized that part of me was still being haunted by my past..
it's just a case of not being affected by it negatively, and instead, learn from it.

Deep and dark times I think when you put those words to pen, you did sound haunted. The illustration is beautiful-full of smothering shawdows and vibrant emotion-great ghost!

bruno diel.. thanks for droppin by too..

hardwax, belinda.. indeed.. if one could erase a memory from the past id have that time on the list. but since we cant, might as well learn from it instead.

grorg.. thanks. to be honest, i made it on MS Paint. as well as most of my illos. and converted it as gif to preserve the spray-like quality.
