Joseph Mayo Wristen - Ghost Shadow

she looks at the world from 
another side of the window

her essence a sandy presence 
before an astral stage curtain

elevator hallucinations
my mind caught
between piped ideas and 
tea cloud beams

my heart waiting 
with anticipation, struggling 
with her nightmares

hour of solitary in meditation 

I have looked into antiquity 
to find her name waited for 
her to show her self to me, 

to disclose where I can find  
her prediction, looking to
understand what is it that has
brought her here, what makes me
want to give my soul to her cause

I have told her I would 
follow her wherever
she desires, to be with her, 
our spirits as one 
searching heavens eventide 

looking to find the next 
dimension, the meaning behind 
death, before it’s too late

our souls binned outside life’s prisms, 
her ghost shadow, waiting for me to 
find the consequence of our purgatory 

she looks at the world from 
another side of the window

waiting for my resolve her love
comforting my soul, I would
destroy your world to free her

Great passion and helplessness in the face of events that cannot be controlled. I have read Jewel's comments and found them to be incredibly insightful.

He loves this woman from the depths of his heart. She is locked in depression and lives in her own little world. He loves her so much but can not climb this mountain of the depression she is in. She won't, can't, let anyone in to "her world". He longs to free her from this web but he knows if he cuts one corner of the web she may fall to her death and he will not have her to , at least...hold in his arms... though her spirit is not there... in her body... he can still hold her in his arms.
