The Ghost Town

5 Jul

Where does the ghost run
when scared out of her shell?

With a rocket at light speed
a place no one can tell

Deep in space
a black white scene

A planet rotating
nothing smells green

Old habits rule here
a welcome numbness greets

A sanctuary for the darkness
that whirls in the streets

It is a sad location
and left for a reason

From the ghost the ghost town
was expelled due to treason

But yet always present
the misty fog once called home

A place of false comfort
but here -at least- she never feels alone
