A ghost

I am working on a song. It is tentatively titled "ghost in the mirror", and is about ghosts (the real kinds that haunt the living), about a lost little girl, about love, about happiness, about fear. Does it have a happy ending? I suppose not, but I would say about it, paraphrasing TVZ, "it's not sad, it's hopeless." Perhaps the lost little girl finds her way home. Or perhaps she remains a ghost in a mirror seen only from the corner of your eye, only glimpses of beauty to frustrate those who have loved and lost, an occasional wailing of pain heard distantly from places that cannot be seen..

Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
