Let the Old Ghosts Go

A poem

who among us is
not haunted by the living?
our past selves unforgiven
besides the dead and gone

for when was pain?
is it hard to trust ourselves
looking through the window
at our used to be?



Dirty realism, grunge lit, creative confessions, spec fic, and assorted literary atrocities.
