Ghosted Me

Ghost of Me
I have disappeared completely,
I have vanished physically,
I remain only a figment of your imagination.
I remain only a fleeting memory in your meditation.
I have ghosted you.

I may have journeyed to another world,
I may have disappeared underground,
I remain only a throbbing pain through your sensations,
I remain only an invisible presence behind your motivations,
I have ghosted you.

I have not called you nightly,
I have not texted you daily,
I remain only a clocked message on your phone.
I remain only as a voicemail when you are alone.
I have ghosted you.

I have not touched you lately,
I have not kissed you gently,
I remain only as your lasting memory of a former romance.
I remain only as your longing desire for a second chance.
I have ghosted you.

I have saved you from long tears,
I have saved you from new fears,
I remain only as your most silent prayer.
I remain only as a treasure that you hold most dear.
I have ghosted you.

Welcome to Neo. Although I normally don't like repeated first words of a line, I feel that this will be an exception. It lends a feel of repetivness of the daily schedule,[ and maybe the reason for the breakup]. Your language use is fine, the pacing is good too. along with the repeated lines. The beginning and end are good, and it's smooth in between. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Thanks, Geezer.
