The Ghost Inside Me: Even More Tales From The Baron is yet another enthralling poetry collection by Billy J. Barnum. The poem Infatuation tells the tale of a scorned woman struggling to comprehend that the man she loves has spurned her. The Creepy Castle follows a determined group of people brave enough to enter a haunted castle and then unexpectedly receive a message they will remember all their lives. In I Know Some Things, we are reminded to treat everything on its merit and strive to be better with each passing day. The Wall is a gentle reminder of the fallen men and women who laid their lives on the line for their country, while The Most Toys asks you to ponder if all worldly possessions are worth the price of giving up your empathy.
Thought-provoking poetry finds a way to make us contemplate, evoking feelings of sadness, joy, love, and wonder in our lives. The Ghost Inside Me achieves this and more. This is the second poetry collection I've read by Billy J. Barnum, and he only seems to get better at his craft. Using clever wordplay to get his message across, Barnum creates truly beautiful stanzas that provide deeply meaningful insights into the grand old mystery we call life. Every poem tells a different story, and each story adds something unique to the rich and diverse narrative. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection and highly recommend it to poetry lovers or readers who love insightful philosophical discourse in general.
