Haunted salutations

I bid you farewell.

You left like a bad movie ends
And all I wanted to do was hit rewind.
I wanted to go back and fix a million things, 
Erase the drawings penciled on my mind.
I wished for this for a long, long time.

One day I realized you were haunted by memories,
These were all the reasons you met with this demise.
I decided I didn’t want to end up like you did,
But I was drowning in my own sea of thoughts.
I barely stayed alive on dark, dark nights.

I wanted to join you and forget this plight,
So I dreamed of escaping and plotted the way.
Then the strangest thing happened as I embarked,
I was held back by a soul gripping my heart.
I am haunted now by a ghostly, ghost of chance.

Greetings dear one.
