Introduction

GHOST poem series consists of three parts, called verses. 

It is a poem about an innocent man who, after being murdered gets to witness the promise made by his lover about immortality. He suddenly wakes up after losing his life and discovered that he has turned into something powerful and much more advanced than an ordinary man. He is much faster, much stronger, more sensitive, almost indestructible and he decides to use his abilities to serve justice to all the crime artists and EVIL doers of the earth ….

 

VERSE ONE : "Death Has Many Faces"

Justice had other plans for me

So death offered no place for me

Oh my love! Oh my love, what have you done to me?

Oh my sweetest mother, come and see what has become of me!!!

 

One night in October, close to midnight it was late

When these merciless savages chose to decide my fate.

I had a nice time with her earlier, we played, we laughed, we cuddled;

She promised me I would never die,

That she had made me immortal so I got me startled 

Because my love never lied! 

 

As I hurried back home I realised I was being followed.

Fear took over me, and my stomach hollowed. 

I noticed not one, or two or three, but five

Creepy faced thugs and each with a knife,

Following me in a jiffy as I hasted

Sure my life was to be wasted.

 

They caught up with me and I was helpless

One hit me so hard in a second i was senseless,

The other lit in front of my eyes a very bright torch

As the rest searched my pockets, pants and skin,

Grabbed my wallet, phone and my nice watch,

Then, one pushed his knife deep in my spleen.

 

I decided to fight back, though it was a risk

I hit one with an elbo, upon my quick twist.

As he fell with a heavy thud,

It made his coleagues mad.

So each with a weapon they stabbed be continuously

And one said “We will remember you posthumously”

 

I was badly hurt, and in a moment I was with God

Saw his angels singing “Praise ye Lord”

My earthly concerns where all no more…

“This is heaven” to myself I thought;

Because I saw everything that’s holly and all

But it was at a price I never bought.

 

As this happened the thugs left me in cold

I was just another victim of a murder untold

Hurt, blood bathed and murdered

The police was to pick up my corpse in the morning;

An investigation was to be covered.

Indeed but a new life for me was dawning!

 

Early morning people gathered around my scene

Yet apart from a pool of blood, they could find a thing.

They knew someone was attacked there

They felt someone might have his life lost

But they could not find his corpse

My dead body had disappeared in thin air !!!!

 

Indeed Justice had other plans for me

So death offered no place for me

Oh my love Oh my love, what have you done to me?

Oh my sweetest mother, come and see what has become of me!!!
