Revenant Planet

I woke up to this other world
Of dreams and phantoms, distant suns;
The watered wastes surrounded me
In reticence both cold and gray
The eerie, haunted day

I felt your ghost beside me there
The terror cold within my chest;
Infinity, directionless —
To row although there was no shore
Just row for evermore

A revenant back from the dead
Among the lifeless planet there;
An alien without a home,
An endless ache of wanting –
With only me
For haunting
