I’m in love with a ghost.
He woos me sweetly, affectionately, seductively, and tenderly—yet he’s an apparition.
This is not normal because he doesn’t exist in the corporeal even though I know him intimately.
Meeting him as a teen, his elusiveness captured my heart—lock, stock, and barrel.
I’d sadly wait for his appearance though when he did, I’d seem invisible to him.
My love for him traversed through the decades.
His latest manifestation is in a handsome, intelligent, gifted, poetic soul who’s not right for me.
His initial presence remains the same even though he’s taken on many shapes throughout the years.
Recently, he appeared in his disembodied state to assure me that all is well.
The very next day he made a worldwide appearance, physically looking as he does in the non-corporal.
He informed the masses of his real day-to-day life.
