The Past, Never Really Passed

8 Jul

Sometimes, I wonder if

I will ever escape

my past;

the past

of those

I love –

the lingering feelings, and

parasitic emotions that


every inch

of happiness

I have fought for.

The ever living ghost,

waiting, to emerge

once more, from

the tethers of being


The demons

in the dark –

a reminder of

what once was,

pouncing out at

the most unexpected hour

of the night.

The clock strikes twelve.

Time is up.

Things are, as

we are.

Can reality ever be

less than


Can it be more.

    Possibly more, they say it is what we make it. I say they because I think outside forces have a toll on this “reality.” Then again we are our demons and others… and what constitutes all of these day to day encounters as a reality; the pinch?? Or is it a multiple reality life?
    Great piece!

      I agree. Life is what we make it, but sometimes things that are out of our control take their toll on us! Thanks so much for reading!! 🙂

    I know just how that feels, and, the things you wrote about are so real, that just about anybody can relate to, very well done!!!
