A Man In Ghost Town

capture the blue sky so you can chase up the star

10 years passed just like ten seconds eyes blinking… he try to figure his motherland on what happen… hurmmm… just a ghost town… what happen, just only one question through his mind… after grandmother left, nothing left in this town…

soil and grass still wet and green… cat walking side of street… car still park on the other side… clock always ticking… but his heart still love the passed 10 years town… yeah… what to do with a dark ghost town… even the grass still green, ghost still around…

politician control dad’s land… manager stick with the order… bachelors create a new design to change their “critical” mind… while mother just smile… and magazine keep comment our “wrong”… between the time, King just manage to sit down on their golden chair…

Hullterd Town just follow the rule… no mouth could protect the truth since the new rules painted on the castle… no one stand on the main road since it was taken by the first layer…

the Ghost Town river change to black… rain fall as yesterday night, crying on their folly… the ghost just walking without thinking, fill the city, and screaming at night…

Togawa keeps thinking… how this 20th century change the King to give them such this worse order… he always thinking… what the next after 20th… blood spill on his own country… smoke screening the sunshine…

“this journey never end until that day… the village will be burn… a mother will rest in peace… and nothing will change…

the history just a history… the old town just a name… and the civilian just a ghost… it will remain unchanged until human rise between the ghost….”

Togawa just finished his last sentence of his novel, “A Man In Ghost Town”… he lay down his body to the brick wall before the last breath… eyes blinking for ten seconds… watching the last scene… “how sad my heart.. God… if they read this novel, will You open their heart…” the last panorama… “behind the scene, it just a venom”
