Just A Ghost

Sarah hadn’t expected him to stop and ask her

how she was doing.

Was it the look on her face?

Pausing for just a moment,

she continued floating.

Up, over her head

like an apparition.

Untethered, no longer within.

Not who she used to be.

Not here, really.

Not anymore.

Looking upon the scene below

she heard herself say

as she continued to drift away,

“I’m fine.

Thanks for asking.”

Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.
