The Ghost Of My Past


Published: June 26, 2018

Fumbling, stumbling,
around in the dark.
Fighting, igniting,
flames from a spark.

Blinded, reminded,
of the fear inside,
Turning, yearning,
for a place to hide.

Soaking, choking,
struggling to breathe,
Hiding, abiding,
my ghost won't leave.

Chasing, racing,
I stagger away,
Breathless, restless
in the mud I lay.

Dreaming, gleaming,
I escape the past,
Winning, new beginning,
I am free at last.
