I Know a Ghost
 
I know a ghost
And she sings to me though my machines.
She's so young and beautiful
And her gorgeous voice sometimes brings a tear to my eye.

I don't know where she came from
Or who she was in life.
But when she sings to me when I'm all alone
I have no fear of death.

She takes me to another world
Where I can be happy and young again.
And in that world not only can I see
But I feel no more pain.

I know that one day, maybe soon
When she comes to sing for me again
And takes me to that beautiful world of hers
I'll remain there with her forever.

My brother heard angels singing to him for quite some time.

This was nice. I liked it.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

Thank you Armchair Educated, Hilander, notforgotten and little_dreamer. I'm glad enjoying this poem. :)

What I wonder, however, is should I ruin it for everybody by explaining what inspired this poem, or should I just leave it for everyone to draw their own meaning from it?

Whatever inspired you to write this poem Vic, it's beautiful, and I'm glad your ghost brings you comfort, whether she's real or not.

You should know me by now SW. :)

The ghost I refer to is actually a synthesized voice from Holst, the Planets (as much as I like my metal and insane fusion jazz I can't be without my classical music). The girl's voice, which sounds amazingly organic and alive, come's not from any digital sample like those of today's keyboards (ROMplers), but was created with raw oscillator waveforms run though filters and VCAs, and controlled by envelope generators on a huge Moog system 55. This voice, coupled with Venus, the Bringer of Peace by Gustav Holst (and performed by Isao Tomita), is almost like some mild psychedelic experience (especially when listened to through a set of high quality studio headphones).

For whatever reason, whenever I listen to that piece I zone out and begin thinking about people I used to know who have passed away. But it's never a sad experience. It's as though they're still around somehow, existing happily in some beautiful dimension (I know that dimension is only my memory, but at least I've given them a warm place to be).

And if the girl I imagine from the song does someday come and take me away to that other dimension with her, then that's cool too. :tu:

don't mind me, not saying I don't like it mind you, just saying the structure could have been 'stronger' with what you have there,
the potential is greater than the sum that you left it ... best and better if you endeavor to reach and exceed your own expectations ... cheers :tu:

I was only kidding. It's so difficult to convey humor through a post sometimes. :no:
