Ghost of My Past

by ossy

Ghost of my past looming within my shadows
With a phobia for light, hiding behind shades
To observe the journey of the living ones
As she confronts the pace at which I move
Each time I swerve to behold her face
Sometimes it is the sinew of my foundation
Other times it is the bone of my pillar
That feels so shaken
Or much threatened
Like the nights’ embrace about one in darkness
Am yoked with the past living in my dreams
Under the shining light giving birth to shadows
I see with the eyes of the past in my head
Like the flowing streams leaving and coming to oceans
My past trails my acts in most familiar ways
Roundabout seasons, age had known my past
Her apparitions are clear and clearer by the day
I would that life have us so widely apart
Although we are never together, or closer enough
My past always haunts the pace of the future

A beautiful poem. I guess we all feel like that at some point in our lives.

    Yes, the past are as our shadows trailing our image.
