isolation

houses are not haunted
at least not by the dead

our energy does not remain
once our bodies expire

not even where we seek solace
or where the bitter despair
of nightmares prey

we believe
spirits exist
because we cannot
admit humanity leaves
nothing
but
cold walls
and hollow words
to be passed among
strangers

a ghost is
feeling a connection
when there isn’t any

a ghost is
isolation
in a crowd
