GhostSometimes people acknowledge meGhost by ~iluvpancakes713
Other times they don’t
I’m there one moment
And the next, I fade into the background
I keep all memories
Happy and sad
Each and every one, treasured
I will never forget,
Even when you do.
I can’t forget
and I wish that I could
There are some who still see me
Others have forgotten and moved on
But, I’ll always be here
I’ll stay and I’ll wait,
Hopeful that maybe you’ll return
I fear that soon no one will be left
And I will be alone
A feeling more painful than death

then the war began.
Fight after fight,
Tear after tear;
leaving no place unmarred
There’s armor now,
Hard as steel,
And cold like frost,
As dependable as it can be;
The shield does its job and more.
Scars line the body,
Remnants of things that refuse to be forgotten,
The armor hides these marks well,
conceals them deep within its safety;
letting none be visible to light.
rarely is the safeguard down,
only in places most secure and trusted.
knowing that there are no battles to be fought against,
no need for the shield,
the form underneath is able to leave its protection.
There are lessons to be learned from these clashes:
feel no shame,
feel no fear,
remain tall and proud with your scars,
knowing you had the courage to continue on another day
