Torn from body
Spirit from bone
Parting our worlds
I am left alone
Today I woke ethereal
This just couldn’t be
Separated from material
Nothing left of me
Did I leave you empty soul?
I should have taken more care.
Our hearts should have been full
Before I vanished to air
I’d give a body for this life
I demand you put charge to brain.
Put that flesh under knife,
And make it just just the same
Walking this place I am so near
Wandering halls I have no claim
These portraits once brought me cheer
How is it that they aren’t the same?
Been cut down yet I’ve grown
Tear these walls and build anew
I’ll stick the queen back to throne
And find a way to hold the glue
The weight of flesh pulls me down
Unfamiliar gravity put foot to ground
Somehow I think I might not drown
I hope you’re proud of what I’ve found
After tears dry
I still wonder most
How did you die
But leave me the ghost
