DEAD STARE

Know you’re there?
Know you care?
Sort of…

Do the dead stare?
Are you watching me, and
Why?  Wishing me well,
Are you? Because I don’t
Know what to do or say
When I can’t see you,
When I only sense you.

Keeping a corner of my eye?
Keeping a creeping up on me?
A sort of love…

Do ghosts bring flowers?
Are you serenading, and
How?  Visiting from hell,
Are you?  Because I don’t
Know what to do or say
While you’re over there,
While I dead stare.
