I think maybe, I could love again

When a ghost, walks upon the mysteries of the unforeseen, they see more than the normal eye can even phantom, but which do they see, and how much truth is known is the mystery within thy mind. For when a ghost walks upon the mysteries of the unforeseen, they relive the past torments of torture in the life they knew and not the uncertainties of the future.

The nightmares battle within each other
fighting for dominance in my mind
which one will win, which shall haunt tonight?

The inner turmoil
sends my stomach churning
scared to sleep, afraid to close my eyes

The demons of the past
dance to and fro
teasing, jabbing and hurting

The screams are silenced into muffled cries
an invisible hand stills my mouth
the pain is inside, where no one can see

The past comes back time and time again
no one to stop it
like back then

1997

You have to know how to accept rejection and reject acceptance.
