Those Ghosts

 

Those ghosts, they like to tear you down,

to wear you out, to make you drown.

Thoughts always there, forever taunting,

moments gone, forever haunting.

Tears right through you, settles in,

makes sure that there’s unease within;

teasing, goading, with ‘What if...?’

Like staring down from one steep cliff.

It will not relax, will not let go,

the past, it says, ‘I love you so!’

Makes you blind to here-and-now,

the present will now take a bow;

will walk away, no tears to shed

but perhaps you’ll feel a sense of dread.

The past has gone, the present too,

there’s really not much left to do.
