Pause by Charlie Sellings

Do you believe in ghosts?
Neither do most people:
forced to close the door on their rationality,
to feel fear.


But what about the real ghosts?
The homeless,
the fortuneless,
the forgotten.
Tangled within the plot-holes of nature’s knot.
Wholly because nature’s not what they anticipated . . .
To fear feeling.


Society’s leftovers, right under our noses.
Whilst you get stressed over the best dressed,
Pause – for a second – and refute refusal.


Unlock your chest, stomach the unusual.
Hope and, open your heart.
Bite your tongue and choose to believe.
Not in ghosts, but in the ghosts.
