Ghost of Past by Roy

Ghosts of Past

by

Roy


Tempted to hold onto my past ties
I walked straight into the tempest of goodbyes
Hoping to stop you from slipping away
Failing to notice that you were never meant to stay,
I bumped into the ghosts of my past addictions
Amidst the turbulence of nostalgic emotions

Powerless was I surrounded by your memories
Dwelling in false hope gave me a sense of uncanny peace
Instead of moving forward, I preferred going back
Releasing those haunting ghosts of my past
who smiled through their wretched souls
Waiting to devour my identity piece by piece

I came to an abrupt halt before the last step
As the brilliance of your face started to fade
Replaced by the hollowness of your absence
It shone again in the desolate eyes of my ghosts
It was the past to what I was looped in 
when In reality you were never to be seen

So, taking one final long drag of my dying smoke
I breathed you out from every senses of mine
Forcing the sleepless ghosts of my pasts
To finally rest at last !
