Hope There's A Ghost

There's a ghost in my head
when I go to bed.

There's a thread that never sleeps
in my head, in my bed,
and it creeps,
dragging feet,
and it leaps -
covered with my sheet -
to haunt me,
no way to flee,
there's a ghost
that scares me the most,
rattling chains
inside my brain,
uncovering my pain.

There's a ghost in my heart
and I don't want him to depart.

(Júlio B.)
