Inktober 2019 Day 22: Ghost

Today's Prompt:

A person clinging to a time gone, an item with a haunted past, a condition you would not wish upon anyone. Ghosts are things of the past best known for haunting the present. Be it a spirit of the deceased or a horrific memory. What memories or beings haunt your world? How do people cope?

Apparitions have always been a recurring topic in human history. Although a rare event, it is indeed possible that a person's soul is held wholly or partially together, resulting in aetherial silhouettes known as Ghosts.
