empty ghosts

no such thing
as empty ghosts
they’re all packing

when’s the last time
you revealed
your true self
and is your birthday suit

back from the cleaners

i feel drained
from all these forewarnings
of self doubt
but i will fight

until the cows
come home

and I remember you
like it was yesterday
in fact it was yesterday
and you never looked more


no such thing
as empty threats
all threats pack a punch
all pressures leave a mark

when’s the last time
you went against
your better judgement
and regretted nothing

i am worn out
from all these
chunky peanut butter
days and nights

and you’re not even
the last thing
on my mind
any longer
